Iron Age

(1200–1000 BCE) The Iron Age in the Levant followed the collapse of the Late Bronze Age when iron tools came into use. Also referred to as the Israelite period it saw the decline of the Canaanite culture of the Late Bronze Age and the appearance of new ethnic groups – the Tribes of Israel, the Philistines and the Sea-Peoples. During this time pottery was made using the coil method and often finished with a burnish.

  • Ancient Biblical Holy Land Burnished Juglet, Judea (1938QKM) $360

    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.
