There is surprising detail on this 7/8” tall figural pendant (102.53HD) that was cast in copper and surfaced in Pre-Columbian days with a light silver coating. Attributed to the Chimu horizon of Peru, dating c.1000-1400AD, the amuletic character (a dancer or healer?), wearing a breechcloth, stands with legs slightly bent, and his remaining single arm flexed at the elbow with hand extended to the front (the left forearm is missing)...

The late Dr. Allen Heflin assembled a large and exceptional collection of Precolumbian molds while working in Mexico from 1946-1962. He attributed this one (AXH1451R2N3) to the Aztecs from the Valley of Mexico (so-noted in black ink on the outside surface of the mold). Made from fired clay, the mold was used to make a number of solid clay female figural casts that perhaps served as either religious or fertility icons...

This semi-polished, mottled light gray and green stone bird pendant (PBF211) was found in the shaft tomb region of southern Colombia close to the border of Ecuador and is attributed to the Narino Capuli period, c.900-1400AD. Measuring 1 7/8” in length from the tip of its toucan-like beak to the tip of its rounded tail, it could easily be mistaken as jade, but with a measured specific gravity of 2.78, it is too light to be so identified...

The ovoid Pre-Columbian gold nose ornaments in this group (93.303CHD, 93.303DHD, 93.305BHD, MAX 72, 74, 76 and 79) are all from the Salinar culture of Peru dating c.400-200BC.

The ornaments were then formed by stone-cutting them out of the relatively thin alloyed precious metal. The ornaments in this interesting group are similar, but none are identical...

The finely detailed and interesting design on the beveled under side of this 3" tall and 4 3/8" wide silver vessel (MAB 224) depicts the repeated image of a seated Peruvian lord drinking from a cup, and standing birds around its cone-shaped stem. Attributed to the Lambayeque (or Sican) culture of north coastal Peru and successors to the Moche, the cup is dated c.800-1350AD. In overall good condition with interior encrustation and some metal loss (on a 1-10 scale, I'd grade it a 7-8), its outer ...
