Seller: parelics (2,885) 100%, Location: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 401546599027 VINCA CULTURE - VERY UNUSUAL LARGE SPINDLE WHORL - 5700-4500 B.C.E. HIGHLY DECORATED This is one of the largest and most decorative spindle whorls that I have ever seen, which makes me wonder if that is what it is. Considering that ritual appears to have been very important to the Vinca, it might have had some other purpose. The artifact, which is essentially complete except for a fairly large chip out of one side, is 3 1/4 inches in diameter and about 1 1/2 inches tall. There are a series of indentations running around the circumference - the deepest run around the outside (there are eight of those). When I acquired this, the dealer said that it was rare and I am assuming that is true as I have not been able to track down another one. I acquired them in 2009 from a German antiquities dealer - they originally were a part of a old private collection of Vinca artifacts. Please check out my other current and future auctions for more Vinca items.I am a historian by profession and I have been collecting for many years and have acquired many items from reputable antiquities dealers and sources. I am thinning out my personal collection and inventory, so check out my other auctions (and in the coming weeks) for more ancient items, including Roman, Vinca and Bronze Age, Medieval, Native American and Civil War artifacts, dive recovered items from Bermuda and historical paper. I will combine shipping upon request. Material: Pottery
