Pre Colmbian Ichma??? (Chancay/Chimu)
Pottery Container, Curiosity #7
950. Description: Rare Pre Colombian Ichma?? (Chancay/Chimu) Like pottery container Curiosity #7 Peru, 1100-1440 AD?
Dimensions: 16” x 11.5”
Condition: Very good for its age. Some erosion on the lip, and to the pigment on the riverside of the piece.
Provenance: Collection of C. Nielson, MD, passed down from her grandfather.
The piece has the characteristics of both Chancay and Chimu cultures. A local Peruvian archaeologist believes that this came as a result of trade between the Ichma- Curiosity #7 and both the Chancay and Chimu cultures. I continue researching the piece to try and pin down an exact culture that might have made this.
