Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391639037857 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An ancient Scandinavian Neolithic flint tool, originally from a late 19th century collection and dating to 4000 - 2000 BC. The Neolithic Scandinavians were a tough people, who clung resolutely to the use of stone tools even as their neighbours adopted metalworking. Length: 4 1/2 inches. Condition: Restored from three fragments.. Provenance: From the collection of James Curle (1862-1944) of Melrose, Scotland, and thence by descent. Although a lawyer by profession, Curle was an accomplished amateur archaeologist and his name remains one of the most famous in the field of Romano-British Archaeology, having excavated and published extensively in the early 1900's. From 1888-1903 Curle acquired the most magnificent collection of Nordic antiquities outside Scandinavia, eventually selling most of his pieces to the British Museum in 1921. The Curle collection in the British Museum has been the subject of numerous publications and remains an important reference point for scholars of prehistoric Nordic artifacts. ArtAncient Ltd. is pleased to have acquired almost all the remaining pieces from the Curle collection, unsold in 1921, retained by his family and with a provenance dating back almost a century.
