Pre Columbian Casas Grandes (Paquime) pottery vessel in the form of a fish. Bulbous body with a petit face at one end and a bifurcated tail at the other. Surmounted by a raised rim, the body of the aquatic animal is enveloped in creamy beige hued slip adorned by red and black painted zigzag patterns reminiscent of pectoral fins. Black painted visage is comprised of target motif eyes, incised nostrils and an open mouth. The rim has been pierced with four drill holes, allowing the vessel to be suspended. Some light restoration to rim, fin and mouth, all done very well and difficult to notice. Light surface wear as expected with age, but otherwise intact and in excellent condition with impressive preservation of painted decoration. Ex.
