Seller: zuzimcoins (414) 100%, Location: Brooklyn, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 191871859899 Material: Bronze, Details: EARLY ISLAMIC ANCIENT BRONZE BOTTLE, CIRCA 8/9th CENTURY C.E. 20.3cm height (about 8 inches). In Excellent, Fully Intact condition with one scratch that is visible in the photo. The jug has a wonderful patina. It appears as if one side was lightly cleaned (ancient patina fully intact) and the other side not cleaned at all. A good learning example of what authentic patinas should look like. Bottle weighs 442 grams (nearly 1 US pound) and is decorated with very attractive protruding almonds. The bottle was probably made to hold precious liquid and there is a very thin pouring neck within that opens up into an ornate cup shaped spout. A VERY HANDSOME early Islamic bottle of generous size and subdued beauty!
