Object Description

A finely modelled Ancient Near Eastern Amlash spouted jar featuring a prominent, long beaked spout rising from a squat, globular body. The vessel features a flat base and a narrowed rim. A single applied handle extends from the vessel’s rim to its shoulder and has been modelled in the shape of a stylised stag. This spouted jar shows a strong stylistic adherence to Luristan counterparts. However, the flattened head of the quadruped and the slightly ridged tubular spout might suggests a typical Amlash practice.

Date: Circa 1st millennium century BC
