Tell el-Yahudiyeh Greyware Juglet

Tell el-Yahudiyeh Greyware Juglet
Circa 1500- 1200 BC

A finely moulded Tell el-Yahudiyeh grey ware juglet featuring a typical globular body rising from a diminutive ring base. It has a thin, cylindrical neck flaring to an opening with an everted rim. An applied single handle bridges over the rim and the shoulder. The punctured geometric patterns presented in continuously connected dots, framed by the two incised bands run across the neck and the body.

Pottery vessels dating 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 early practices on metal wares. Most of the Bronze Age terracotta bowls from the Holy Land were made for a daily purpose.

Measurement: 13.6cm height

Provenance: Ex London collection, formed pre-1992.
