Object Description

An Assyrian finely cast bronze bowl, featuring a hemispherical container with a shallow calotte-shape, dating to the late 8th century BC. The bowl features a flat base and a moulded rim. Its slightly convex walls render an elegant continuously curved profile. The interior base features a beautifully engraved raised rosette, from which a small, cone-shaped protrusion rises. The rosette, comprising narrow, elongated petals that are characteristic of the Assyrian rosette, is framed by an encircling herringbone pattern. The majority of the interior surface is clear of patination and has a beautiful polished finish.

Date: Circa late 8th century BC

Object Condition

Very fine condition. Part of the bowl is covered with attractively lustrous brownish patina.
