Pottery from the Time of the Patriarchs. Judaea c. 2500-1500 BC. A pair of quality early ceramic artifacts. Beaker height: 4-3/4". Lamp width: 5-1/2". 1. The earliest is a beaker in red ware that is coil-formed rather than wheel turned, accounting for its asymmetrical shape. 2. A later date wheel-made bowl which has been folded on two sides to form an ingenious lamp. Both are fine examples, and finely preserved. The beaker is scarce. Choice and fascinating artifacts from Judaea's earliest period.
Estimated Value $300 - 450.
Ex Shirley Barr Sage Collection, published in her Biblical Numismatics: Thirty Pieces of Silver, illustrated and discussed on p. 16.

Realized $230
