Ancient earthenware juglet


Amlash, Iran c.1600-1050 BC


£1,000

A beautifully shaped spherical juglet with a small neck and unusual double handle. Its tonal, textured surface reflects its history and age, and the tiny, geometric indentations across its body are typical of ancient Tell el-Yahudiyeh ware vessels. Found at sites across Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean, this type of pottery was decorated by repeatedly pricking the clay to form intricate patterns.

Provenance: From an English private collection. Purchased in Tehran from Monouchehr Soleiman Aaron in the 1970s, accompanied by a Polaroid with the words ‘from Amlash (north of Iran)’.
