This small ceramic pot was made between 1200 and 1400 AD during the Carchi culture’s Tuncuhuan phase. The yellow ceramic was brightly polished and painted in monochrome red-brown colour. Additionally the remains of dark negative resist painting are visible, figural at the top and geometric at the bottom with horizontal lines. This painting was mostly created through resin or honey on the monochrome ground and made to char during the burning process.
The beautiful pot is in good condition with a small chip on the upper rim. The dimensions are 14 x 8.5 cm (diameter x height).
