Maya Chama Plate

500 AD to 850 AD.

 10 1/4″ in diameter.

A gorgeous Maya plate from the Chama region of Guatemala. Ceramics from this area are scarce, with plates being the rarest. 

It is beautifully painted with a deep orange, cream, yellow and black pigments. The three glyphs are not readable but are bold and well done. The water lilies are very delicate and a symbol of royalty. The perimeter of the rim is done with a black and cream chevron design which is typical for this style.

The plate is published in the Kerr database found on #K9287

It is in remarkably perfect condition with no chips, breaks, repairs or restoration. There are nice root marks present on the underside.

Ex Ron Mesick Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Ex Harvey Sarner collection. Acquired in the 1970s.
