The term, "pre-Colombian" has little to do with the nation of Colombia. It simply means civilizations before the time of Colombus, and also after Colombus if they had not yet been influenced by the new Europeans. Some of these cultures were in many ways more advanced than the invading Europeans, but they were less advanced militarily, so they were doomed.
Estimated Value $5,000 - 6,000.
Ex Trigo Collection.

Realized $10,350
