Exceptional Mayan Funerary Offering Plate

Late Classic period 600 - 800 AD

This beautiful Mayan Polychrome offering rattle leg plate measures 13 1/8" diameter by 3" tall.  The offering plate has a kill hole in the center along with three rattle legs.  The plate has paint surface wear from use on the face and one of the rattle legs has been re-assembled no other condition issues.  The face has a Lord or Deity holding what could be a feather broom?  I purchased the plate from a dealer who acquired it from the estate of a National Geographic's photographer.  The name was not supplied.   Unfortunately there is no provenance that comes with the piece.  I will supply a Statement of release capturing all details.
