Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 291112995122 An ancient Cypriot Iron Age white painted ware terracotta bowl, dating to approximately 800 - 600 BC. With a gently sloping form, shallow walls, diminutive strap handles and sitting upon a ring base, this bowl has a character of simple elegance. The piece decorated with a cream slip and concentric rings of black paint covering the interior and exterior of the vessel, along with wonderful polychrome on the base, this distinctive decoration allows us to date the bowl to the later phases of the Cypriot Iron Age. The unique geographic location of Cyprus at the crossroads of seafaring trade in the eastern Mediterranean made it an important centre for trade and commerce. By the time this wonderful vessel was potted, Cyprus had established contacts with civilisations across the classical world, including the ancient centres of the Near East, Egypt, and southern Anatolia. Diameter: 8 inches. Condition: Very good, unrestored and as shown. Provenance: Ex collection of Mr J. Davies, gifted to Mr Davies in the 1950's by a member of the Cypriot government and legally exported to the UK, remaining in the family until 2011. Cypriot export tag tied to handle.
