Holy Land Terracotta Cup

Holy Land Terracotta Cup
Circa 2nd millenium BC

A fine Holy Land terracotta cup featuring a cylindrical bowl supported by a ring base leading to a carinated shoulder and a wide opening.

Pottery vessels dated to the Late Bronze Age have been widely excavated across the Holy Land, indicating the close association between terracotta vessels and the proto-urbanised life. During the Late Bronze Age, pottery bowls, with either sharp or gentle carination design, are believed to have imitated the early practices on metal wares. Most of the Bronze Age terracotta bowls from the Holy Land were made for a daily purpose.

Measurements: 8.9cm width, 9cm height

Provenance: Ex London collection, formed pre 1992.
