Item:392316190353ANTIQUE DETAILED ENGRAVED BRASS RAMS HEAD RHYTON DRINKING VESSEL CUP HORN W/FACE ANTIQUE DETAILED ENGRAVED BRASS RAMS HEAD RHYTON DRINKING VESSEL CUP HORN W/FACE Click images to enlarge Description Welcome to my auction - Up for your consideration is this antique, rams head rhyton. Dating back as far as the Bronze Age, or the 2nd millennium BC, these conical containers, were intended for drinking liquid libations or used as pouring vessels at a table or ceremony. They are typically formed in the shape of an animal's head, and were produced over large areas of ancient Eurasia, especially from Persia to the Balkans. Featured here is finely detailed horned, rams head with the neck engraved with a sullen faced, woman's head and floral, scroll designs on each side of the handle which looks like it may be bronze. There were no identifying marks found, age is unknown and it is not known if this an original old rhyton or an antique reproduction? This is from a high end Florida estate with no history. Patina suggests it has quite a bit of age. PLEASE NOTE - US shipping may be cheaper in a regional rate box (it is not an option to use in the auction) so please wait to hear from me if you need an adjusted invoice, thanks. CONDITION - The vessel is in fine, antique, pre-owned condition! Some normal age/use wear as expected, darkening, reddening and some greening of metal, please look at photos - as with all of my estate items, I have not cleaned it. SIZE - It measures approximately 8" long, 4 1/2" across rams ears, 4" across flared opening, 4 1/4" tall when resting on handle. A fine antique libation vessel to give as a gift, use yourself or display in your own collection!
