What does this mean?

Hi Camilla,

This object appears to be a female figure in the late Classic Mayan style. A similar example is held in the San Diego Museum of Man collection. -https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Noblewoman_Figurine_Rattle,_Jaina_Style,_Late_Classic_Mayan_-_San_Diego_Museum_of_Man_-_DSC06869.JPG

The museum noted the object is a rattle and is likely from the Jaina Island site. I could not find auction
example of Jaina rattles. However, I did find several examples from the Veracruz region. The estimate is based on those examples in similar size.

Oh sorry Camilla, I forgot to identify the other object. I'm so sorry. The second object appears to be a Jamacoaque figure, possibly just a figure or a simplified depiction of a warrior. I've edited the estimate to include both figures. However, the Jaina rattle would estimate to $300 - 1000 and the Jamacoaque figure would estimate to $100 - 500.
