Object Description

A finely cast and hammered bronze bowl, featuring a hemispherical container with a shallow calotte-shape, dating to the late eighth century B.C. It has a flat base and a straight rim. Its slightly convex walls render an elegant continuously curved profile.

The centre features a beautifully incised central rosette, from which a small, pyramid-shaped knob rises. Its rosette, comprising narrow, elongated petals that are characteristic of the Assyrian rosette, is framed by an encircling herringbone pattern.

Date: Circa late eighth century BC
Culture: Assyrian or Iranian Bronze Vessel Workshops

Object Condition

Very fine condition, minor crack on the rim. The entire bowl is covered with attractively lustrous brownish patina.
