Lot 4876

Judaean Timeline in Ceramics. Judaea-Palestine, c. 1000 Bc to 200 AD. Lot of five different pieces spanning major periods in Judaean history. Heights: 3" - 5-3/4". From the Age of Kings, the two smaller handled juglets were forms that David and Solomon would have been familiar with. Later, but pre-Exile, is a small buff-colored pot. The small alabastron probably dates to the Maccabean era, whereas the red-slipped jug might have been a type the Apostles or the defenders of Masada could have used. The larger jug is repaired at the handle, while the rest are well preserved and in very fine condition. A nice group -- these a tactile presence of ancient lives.
Estimated Value $400 - 650.
Ex Shirley Barr Sage Collection, published in her Biblical Numismatics: Thirty Pieces of Silver, illustrated and discussed on pp. 19, 22, 23.

Realized $460
