A delightful Chimu Coatimundi vessel. Burnish brown-ware with vertical spout and strap handle. Though these vessels were mold made, extra care was given here to produce this sweet and naturalistic face for ceremonial use. The upper body is textured with smoothing separating its lower half. Daily domestic use vessels showed less aesthetic commitment.

Generous amounts of mineral deposits and root marks enhances this vessel’s character. North coast, Peru. 1200-1455 AD.

Small chip underneath handle and on rim. Completely intact without any restoration. Very fine condition.

Measures 7.25"/18.41 cm. in height.
