Persian Bronze Bowl w/ Eagle Etching in Center

Ancient Near East, Achaemenid Persian Empire, ca. 550 to 330 BCE. A wonderful small round bowl with thin sides, a flat base, and no rim or foot. On the interior is an etching of an eagle with one leg striding forward. This bowl would have been used in a funerary context, perhaps to hold offerings or libations. The eagle, a symbol of royalty, suggests that this would have been a high status grave. Size: 6.45" W x 2" H (16.4 cm x 5.1 cm)

Condition: Patina and some encrustation

Provenance: Ex-Private Orange County, CA collection
