Description: Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, ca. 300 BCE to 300 CE. A very large redware pottery vessel depicting four gourds, its globular body magnificently modeled with these organic squashes, each with horizontal ribs and nubby stems, the entire vessel standing on a rounded base, with a flared rim. All slipped with a saturated red vermillion slip that was beautifully burnished and shows wonderful root marks and mineral deposits. This vessel is a classic case of art imitating life, as the indigenous of Mexico used hollowed gourds for storing and serving food and drink. Size: 9.75" in diameter x 7.125" H (24.8 cm x 18.1 cm)

Provenance: Ex-NYC collection, ex Bill Barnet collection. Mr. Barnet was an American artist known for his paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints depicting genre scenes of daily life in transcendent dreamlike worlds. A longtime resident of the National Arts Club, Barnet died in New York on November 13, 2012 at the age of 101.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
