A lovely Chimu-Inca phytomorphic vessel from Peru, ca. 1100 - 1450 AD. This fine example is 7" long and depicts a pepino, a sweet melon-like fruit of great importance to ancient Andean people. The upper half of the chamber is highly burnished, the lower half is matte. In excellent condition, with good mineral deposits. Comes with ring base.
