Object Description

A Holy Land terracotta juglet set on a low ring foot with a low squatting body and a long vertical handle that begins at the widest part of the body and ends on the wide neck just below the everted rim. This is a very common thick walled jug-form used to store oils. During this period pottery finishing techniques improved: potters used a remarkable amount of red slip, applied by hand and smoothed with an irregular burnish.

Date: Circa 3rd-1st Millennium BC

Object History

Important collection by descent, pre 1998.

Object Condition

Very fine, with accretions over whole. One substantial dent to the body under the handle, otherwise complete and intact.
