This stunning stemmed bowl from the Pre-Columbian Narino Culture in Colombia is a rare find for any collector of Latin American ethnographic antiques. The deep red color of the pottery, along with its intricate design and skilled craftsmanship, showcase the original and authentic style of the Narino people. This piece is estimated to date back to around 900-1000 CE, making it truly exceptional and a must-have for any serious collector of Pre-Columbian art.
