Holy Land Iron Age Redware Pottery Jar

Near East, Holy Land, Iron Age II, ca. 8th to 5th century BCE. A jug with a distinctive, bulbous body, standing on a diminutive round foot and possessing a narrow spout and a ribbed rim. The handle is formed from a slightly twisted, cuboid piece of pottery, giving the piece some whimsy. Historically, Iron Age II is the time when Israel was becoming a unified state under kings David and Solomon; meanwhile, influences from Cyrpus, other parts of the Levant, and the Phoenicians were all creating a cultural melting pot that greatly influenced pottery styles. Juglets like this would presumably have been used to hold perfumes or other precious liquids. Size: 3.75" W x 4.5" H (9.5 cm x 11.4 cm)

Condition: Intact, with light encrustation on surface. Expected surface wear from age.

Provenance: private Rochester, Michigan, USA collection
