Object Description

A finely potted Nabataean red terracotta vessel, featuring a globular body with a short foot, leading to a wide rim. The vessel’s shoulder contains what remains of an applied missing handle. Geometric patterns and floral motifs are emphasised around the shoulder and upper body in black pigment. The bright orange colour of the terracotta is characteristic of Nabataean pottery, caused by the high level of iron in the clay.

Date: Circa 1st-2nd century AD

Object Condition

Fine condition, the handle is now missing.
