Guest Book
A choice Inca ceremonial pitcher from Peru, ca. 1400 – 1500 AD. This finely made vessel is 4-1/4” high and is decorated with two bands of geometric designs painted in black over the highly burnished red slip. The broad strap handle is decorated with a variety of linear designs and shows signs of extensive usage.

Cf. Domingo “Arqueologia Andina Peru”, page 365, for similar from Madrid’s Museo de America.
