What does this mean?

Hi again Camilla,

This item appears to be a Costa Rican tripod vessel Many resources state objects similar to this one are attributed to the Central Highlands Atlantic Watershed area. The image upload shows the object upside down. It is a bit difficult to identify from the image but the embellishments on the tripod supports usually depict exaggerated reptile or aquatic figures. These vessels range in size and your appears to be on the larger size.

As I've stated in previous appraisals, dating the item would require in-person examination. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of similar figures in similar dimensions. Please note that dealer or private prices may vary. Further, estimates are contingent on condition and authenticity. Thank you again for you inquiries with Mearto. Take care.
