Customer Question
I don't know lol ...

I don't know lol

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have this effigy vessel I bought at tag sale the auctioneer said it was a planter I knew that wasn't right and it intrigued me. Then I thought it might be a piece of Hopewell pottery but the Curator there said no try Central/South America so I am stumped perhaps you can help I have images

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It is pottery. The vessel shows a hood or skin with ears the ears. Additionally, the area around the nose has whiskers and what looks like a bone pin through it
