PLEASE NOTE:

During the Coronavirus pandemic I am unable to post anything right away other than very small things like scarabs, amulets, rings and a few other smaller items. 

Also I'm not going online much and if you send me an email I may not be able to reply for a while .

Stay safe!

To either ENQUIRE or BUY a piece click the button you will see with each  item.

No impersonal 'shopping basket' system here. I prefer to do all this personally by email.

 

 

ALSO  PLEASE NOTE

There are hardly any items for sale beyond page 29 on the gallery here.

I have left so many sold items on show (and in the sold archive) as many collectors have said they find such photos and information useful to have.

Textile from the Nazca culture of ancient Peru, circa 200 AD.

This is how it was described when I acquired it from Wallis Gallery of Antiquities in Canada in 2008.

"This
is a really special piece. Mounted on a heavy black cotton backing,
this textile gauzework and mantle fringe makes a visually stunning
combination. The piece is large, measuring 37" long and 13" wide. The
mantle segments depicting birds, are woven in the brightest raspberry,
yellow and blue colours ever seen in Pre-Columbian textiles. The textile
dates to 200 AD.  From the collection of Mr. Sidnei Mochado, Mesa,
Arizona"


 I have the digital certificate of guarentee from Wallis Gallery.
Price: 795 GBP
