Hi Gary,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
These look to me to be mostly for the tourist/export trade
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An assembled collection of Pre-Columbian style small artifacts
Central American, most probably 19th century or later, comprising:
- a glazed earthenware head on tripod base (approximately 4 1/2-5 inches high) ($75-125)
- a glazed earthenware one-handled vessel with stylized raised decoration (approximately 3 1/2-4 inches diameter) ($100-150)
- a small stoneware bowl with black glaze decoration (and head?) (approximately 2 1/2 inches) ($50-75)
- a figural carved and polished soapstone ax head(?) (approximately 4 1/2 inches tall) ($150-250)
PROVENANCE: inherited from a neighbor
