He had a great collection in Peru of pottery and textiles, ... And several gold masks. ... He was a fascinating person but obviously, he was playing for all he''s worth with the political situation in Peru.... And we heard later on that he went down, unfortunately, his friends were out by the time he got down, so then he was immediately clapped into prison, and he was in prison for several years. But he got out some very fine things. One of the best things was the gold mask that we have. Which is a beauty. One of the ears was missing on it, remember?

The unique handle design inhibited both evaporation and spillage as it allowed the vessel to be carried on a belt or sash.
