Seller: clioantiquities (144) 100%, Location: Wilmington, North Carolina, Ships to: US, Item: 132011034248 Large Cypriot Black on Red Ware Pottery Bowl 7th Century BC CULTURE / REGION OF ORIGIN: Cyprus. DATE: 7th Century BC (Iron Age, Cypro-Archaic Period) DIMENSIONS: 8 cm (3.1 in.) tall, 18.5 cm (7.2 in.) wide at the handles DESCRIPTION: Intact. A large ceramic Cypriot bowl in typical black on red ware of the Cypro-Archaic period. The vessel has a deep shape with broad mouth and rests on a well formed flat base. There are two small handles at either side, each rising very steeply to just below the rim and with a vertically placed slit opening, probably for suspension. On one side of the interior are a group of small black smudges, possibly the potter's fingerprints. The bowl is covered all over with a bright orange-red slip that was originally polished, with details in added black. These include a band covering the upper side of the handles and continuing down to meet with a pair of broad bands encircling the vessel's exterior mid-section. A thin band covers the interior lip of the bowl and the interior center is decorated with an arrangement of two thick bands with five narrow bands between and a single broad band with a small circle at center in the bottom. Some rubbing to the slip on the exterior and bits of lime encrustation on the interior. PROVENANCE: Property from an English deceased estate. Ex Bonhams, London. COMPARISONS: Typical of Cypro-Phoenician shapes of this period but definitely a local product. For a good review of Cypro-Phoenician pottery types, see Glenn E. Markoe, Phoenicians, The British Museum Press, 2000, pages 160-16 NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: US Bidders / Buyers ONLY, Please! Material: Pottery
