Seller: thehistorybank (12,226) 99.9%, Location: Woodinville, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 112214498612 MORE FROM THE COLLECTION OF ANTIQUITIES WE ACQUIRED ALONG WITH THE MINERALS AND METEORITES ASSEMBLED OVER THE LAST ~30 YEARS. THIS IS ANOTHER ITEM DUG IN ISRAEL OR THE NEARBY SURROUNDING AREA. MOST OF THE ITEMS IN THE COLLECTION CARRY THE NOTATION THAT THEY WERE DUG IN ISRAEL. DURING THE ROMAN OCCUPATION OF THE MIDDLE EAST, THE BOUNDARIES OF REGIONS WERE OBVIOUSLY DIFFERENT AND WHILE ROMAN ARTIFACTS ARE FROM THE DEAD SEA AREA NORTH THROUGH JERUSALEM AND TO THE COAST BY CAESAREA, ROMAN INFLUENCE CONTINUED ON THROUGH SYRIA AND EGYPT AS WELL. WE PERSONALLY ACQUIRED A FEW ITEMS IN ISRAEL, AS WELL, MORE THAN 30 YEARS AGO, PURCHASING FROM ISRAEL GOVERNMENT CERTIFIED ANTIQUITIES DEALERS. THIS CAME WITH THE SPOON LISTED AND THE TWEEZERS AND I BELIEVE THEY WERE EXCAVATED/DUG AT THE SAME TIME AND COLLECTED IN THE US IN THE 1970S OR 1980S. IT'S JUST ABOUT IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW FOR SURE WHAT THIS WAS USED FOR BUT THE FACT THAT IT WAS FOUND ALONG WITH THE SPOON AND TWEEZERS WOULD MAKE ONE ASSUME IT IS A DOMESTIC PIECE BUT THAT WOULDN'T RULE OUT THAT IT COULD'VE BEEN USED BY AN ARTIST. THE TIP (OPPOSITE END FROM THE SCOOP DEVICE) HAS SOME RUST THAT LOOKS AS THOUGH THE VERY END WAS DECOMPOSED AFTER THE CENTURIES IN THE EARTH. THE SHAFT REMAINS FINELY TWISTED AND VERY ATTRACTIVE. OVERALL IT COULD BE LOOKED OVER BECAUSE OF ITS SIMPLICITY, BUT TO REALIZE ONE IS LOOKING AT A 2,000-YEAR OLD OBJECT WITH A VERY FUNCTIONAL SCOOP END AND A NEATLY AND PRECISELY TWISTED SHAFT, IT TAKES ON MORE OF THE APPEAL IT SHOULD. IT IS INDEED A FINELY MADE HAND TOOL....CREATED TWO MILLENNIA AGO. WE ALWAYS COMBINE SHIPPING AND WE NO LONGER SHIP OUTSIDE THE US. VERY INEXPENSIVE, COILED DESIGN SHAFT AND SMALL SCOOP AT THE TIP. DISPLAYS QUITE NICELY.
