Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



One to two hundred years ago the coastal kilns of Borneo were known for their pots.  Most pots were known for containers of human trophies, or a substitute for a human head.  Also, those same kilns were known for their smaller pots and fired ceramics used by shamans and tribal chiefs to store herbs, healing substances and sacred potions.


The colors were always rich . .  blue, green, earth brown and more.


I believe that this pot  is from the early 1900s.  The metal stand was probably added later.


It is a museum quality pot and in pristine condition.


For the Serious Collector.
