Seller: wunderhomefineart (321) 100%, Location: Brooklyn, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 271854958201 Ancient Roman Bronze Zoomorphic Panther Head Hydria Jug Handle, 1st-3rd Century Description: Ancient Roman Bronze Zoomorphic Panther Head Hydria Jug Handle, Circa 1st-3rd Century CE. Nicely cast and with a rich verdigris patina, the handle modeled in the form of the upper section of a panther with stylized head finial and curved legs terminating in large teardrop shaped feet. Hydria were large three handled urns used primarily for carrying water, which had two side handles for lifting and another vertical one for pouring. The handles were cast separately from the body and attached by means of rivets and solder. These large and costly bronze vessels were probably only used on special occasions or for religious rites, although they did also function as containers for drawing lots, athletic prizes and as cinerary urns. The panther was the companion of Bacchus. Dimensions: 2.95" high x 2.95" wide x 1.57" deep (7.5cm x 7.5cm x 4cm). Weight: 9.36 oz. (265g) Condition: Overall, the handle is in fair/good condition with appropriate signs of age. The surface of the bronze heavily oxidized and with a rich verdigris patina. One paw form end is bent inward. All major flaws are noted in the condition report above; however, as each of our items is unique and with a history of it’s own, there may be minor flaws and signs of age from years of handing which are not mentioned.

Items being returned must be packed and shipped in the original packaging and box. If there is a marked discrepancy between the item you receive and the item as described in the listing online, we offer a full refund of the purchase price as well as original shipping costs. However, If the item’s condition is as it was represented in the listing, but you are not happy with your purchase for whatever reason, we’ll be able to refund the purchase price (but not the shipping/packing costs) less a 10% restocking fee as long as you let us know within seven-days upon receipt of the item. Refunds will be made upon receipt and inspection of the item and will be made in the manner in which the payment was received. International Customers Please Note: Due to the high costs of shipping overseas, we are only able to refund the purchase price of the item, and not the shipping costs, for any item being returned. Condition: We spend a lot of time describing each item accurately and want you to know exactly what you are buying. If you ever feel an item you bought was misrepresented or not what you expected, please contact us immediately and we will work with you to correct the situation. Please Note: We do not guarantee the condition of any frames that are sold with our artwork. All items subject to availability. Payment Payments must be made within 3 days of purchase. If you are unable to pay for the item within 3 days, please contact us though eBay. If your payment has not been received and we have not heard from you within 5 days of purchase, we will file a non-paying bidder alert through eBay. Payments must be made through PayPal. This is very easy to use and you can use your preferred credit card. Personal checks are not accepted under any circumstances and we cannot ship any item until a payment has cleared. Sales Tax: Buyer must pay sales tax if the item is shipped within or picked up in New York State (8.375%). If you are a dealer and have a NY resale number, please contact us by phone or eBay messages to send a scanned copy of Form ST-120 (resale certificate) for our records. Shipping Our default domestic shipping method is either USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground with Signature Required (please be sure that someone will be available to sign for the package). Our default international shipping carrier is USPS Priority Express International (the most reliable option providing a tracking number). Our posted shipping rates includes packing materials and insurance; however, we reserve the right to adjust the shipping cost in the event the actual cost is significantly higher. Shipping Time: Our items are generally shipped out within 1-3 Business Days from the receipt/ clearing of payment. Domestic orders should arrive in 2-5 business days, while International orders may take a week or longer. We will send you a tracking number as confirmation as soon as your item is shipped. Special Requests: If you need an item shipped to meet a specific schedule due to an event or traveling plans, please contact us and we will try to accommodate to the best of our ability. We are happy to combine shipping/packing for customers who purchase multiple items (when possible). International Orders: Due to the fragile nature of our inventory, we require that all items shipped internationally be mailed using a mail service providing tracking information as well as insurance. Please do not ask us to ship via Economy service or Parcel Post. USPS’s flat-rate boxes are appealingly inexpensive; however, their racking numbers are useless once they leave the US, so we will not ship by this means under any circumstance. We will not designate any item as a "gift" or mark the value of the item less than the actual cost of the item when it was sold at auction. This is both against the law and eBay policy, so these requests will be ignored. However, at the customers request we will be happy to highlight any item as an "antique" or "100+ years old" if this is in fact true. Customs/ VAT Taxes/Duties: International shipments are often held and inspected by Customs officials and may be subject to additional taxes/fees before they are released. We cannot anticipate VAT or other foreign duties. If you are an international customer, please be aware that your country may assess import duties/taxes. Any taxes or fees assessed on an item are the sole responsibility of the buyer as per eBay policy. If a shipment is refused by the buyer and returned to us, we will not refund shipping costs. If a parcel is stuck in custom's or lost, we will work with you to resolve the matter as quickly as possible; however, this process can take several weeks and a refund will only be issued after we have filed an inquiry and insurance claim. Returned Packages: We are not responsible for any item returned to us as "undeliverable" if the address provided by the customer matches the address provided by eBay on your account. In this event, the customer is required to provide an alternate shipping address and cover the additional shipping costs before the item will be shipped again. If you wish to send the item to your work or a different address, please contact us immediately after purchasing the item so we can update the shipping label. Lost or Damaged Items: Unfortunately, boxes are occasionally lost, damaged or go missing during transit. In the event of loss or item damage, we are required to notify the carrier so that a trace can be started. Following their procedure, the insurance claim can usually be filed no sooner than one (1) month after the carrier has started their trace of the package. The customer will be refunded only after the insurance claim has been completed. Contact Hours: While I am often on the road searching for new and unusual pieces, I try and keep office hours from 10:00AM-5:00pm EST, Monday through Friday. General Questions: For general inquiries or information regarding a specific listing, please contact me through eBay messages and I will get back to you as soon as I am able (generally within 24 hours). However, If you would prefer to speak with me over the phone, please send a message through eBay and I will reply with my cell phone number.
