Early Bronze Age, ca. 3000-2000 BC. An incredibly rare, polished black, beak spouted jug with nearly a verticle flaring spout. Crafted by hand with a round shaped bottom and uneven surface, looped handle from the body to spout hole, the lip of spout is curved. This memento from early antiquity has not been cleaned and is in the original condition as found. Bares some light earthen deposits. A natural, oval-shaped hole in the neck. Being consigned to a military and historic firearm dealer, from a private collector who recently passed away. An authentic artifact with age of antiquity, a museum quality ancient Greek relic. PROVENANCE: Dr. W. F. Blanke's personal collection. After retiring, Dr. Blanke was part of archeological excavations in Ireland and Scottland, other parts of Europe, and areas of the Middle East. Dr. Blanke also bartered and purchased worldly artifacts from private collections and galleries in Europe, and in the United States and kept in his own personal collection. This Cypriote jug was found in the mid to late 1930's, an exact location has not been given. The collector never sold a single piece from his explorations or purchases. After his passing, a portion of his collection was donated to several museums, and to a university. During the liquidation of his multiple estates and properties, Mr. Blanke's records of provenance were misplaced. If found, the winner will get copies of any and all paperwork in regards to this artifact, or any artifact we are currently selling. We can nor guarantee the paperwork will be located as it is in the families hands at this point. However, the current executor has guaranteed us that no matter how long of a length of time, any buyer will get whatever paperwork, records, photo's, magazine articles, certification, provenance etc. even if it is months (or longer). The family will be conducting sales of Mr. Blanke's belongings for quite some time as he owned a substantial amount of personal property.
