    Thrift Store Pottery Find

    Picked this up at the thrift store for $1.99.
    A pottery piece of some sort.
    I have no idea if it is real, authentic, A souvenir, or even old.
    Can any experts out there shed some light on this piece?

    With just looking at the pictures I believe it just might be real and several hundred years old and if it is, properly from Panama

    It does look real but they can fake anything! But still has the look of old pottery.

    Greeneman215-- what an awesome find, things like this keep me coming back to thrift stores. Here we are a year later... have you learned anything about it since your posting? If someone faked that, they certainly put a hell of a lot of time & effort into it, particularly with the fading red pigments. Almost looks to be carved from a whale vertebrae?

    Sorry for late reply, I never did find anymore information about it. It sits in my barrister. I'm almost certain it's pottery. It does look old to me and for $2 you can't beat it. It didn't have a price on it at first so I had to wait until the next day for them to call me with a price of $2 lol.

    Google Nicoyan Pottery. Probably found in the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica, probably closer to the Nicaraguan border than the thinner walled classic Nicoyan pottery found in central Guanacaste.

    I have not done metal detecting since 1995 but at that time I had a Fisher underwater metal detector.

    Actually looks like an elephant! I have a collection of Panamanian ceramics from the chiriqui region and the style does not match . My feeling is that is fake. The thickness of the walls seems too much.
