    $360.00
    H: 3”  Dia: 2.75″ | FREE SHIPPING!

    This small juglet has a globular body, a round base, a very short neck, a wide mouth and short handles on each side. Like many other small Second Temple Period (circa 597-300BCE) pieces it is a functional item covered with a black slip and burnished. Small juglets like this “…were finished to a higher quality and were used for cosmetics and scented oils [and perfumes and ointments].” (Frank) This piece is intact, in good condition and a genuine piece from ancient history. There are two chips on the mouth rim, body dents, and burnish losses, all expected for its age and longer than two millennia old burial.

  • Ancient Ceramic Snail Shaped Vessel, West Mexico, Jalisco (3290BLB) $435

    $435.00
    H: 4.75”  W: 2.75”  D: 1.75” | FREE SHIPPING

    This Protoclassic (circa 200BCE – 200CE) ceramic painted figurine of an ovoid snail was fashioned as a vessel with a wide large spout on top. Many early Jalisco ceramics were utilitarian and used for cooking, carrying water or storing seeds. The size and shape of this piece suggest it was made to hold liquids. Pieces like this were often decorated with applied painted designs that faded because they were not fired after painting. In contrast to the rest of Mesoamerica which had complex urban centers, areas of habitation in West Mexico were small, especially in the Colima Jalisco-Nayarit area. Because these areas had been abandoned for centuries, utilitarian objects like this were rarely found whole and required their fragments to be assembled and restored. This piece is in very good condition with cracks and paint losses and may have expected repairs at its spout.

    Produced in northern Apulia in the early Daunian period, this cup with a flaring rim has a wide loop ear-shaped handle attached at the bottom, looping above and attached to the top rim.

There may be repairs to the handle as there is a thick uneven slip applied over the painted body underneath it or the handle might have been attached after the body paint was completed. Otherwise it is in very good condition.
