Object Description

A finely rendered Nabataean red terracotta bowl featuring thin egg-shell-like walls which rise from the tubular base-ring to form a continuously curved profile. The vessel displays the characteristic of the bright orange colour in Nabataean pottery caused by the high level of iron in the clay. Some weathering is present on the bowl’s surface which has left fading on the light cream pigment used to decorate the vessel in the form of a continuous band around the rim.

Date: Circa AD 1st – 2nd Century

Object History

From an important collection of Near Eastern pottery formed by a gentleman, deceased, before 1988; passed by descent to his family in London and Geneva.

Object Condition

Good condition, a few minor chips to the rim.
