Seller: thehistorybank (12,211) 99.9%, Location: Woodinville, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 122238419933 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 'SCOOPING' TYPE INSTRUMENT AND I BELIEVE THEY WERE EXCAVATED/DUG AT THE SAME TIME AND COLLECTED IN THE US IN THE 1970S OR 1980S. THE TWEEZERS WE SEE IN THE MARKETPLACE ARE GENERALLY OFFERED WITH THE DESCRIPTION THAT THEY COULD BE DOMESTIC/COSMETIC OR MEDICAL AND I CANNOT THINK OF ANY FACTS THAT WOULD MAKE THIS STATEMENT ANY DIFFERENT. ONE SIMPLY DOESN'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW IMPLEMENTS WERE USED. EVEN WITH THE DESCRIPTIONS OF MEDICAL PROCEDURES UNDERTAKEN, MANY OF THE DESCRIBED TOOLS COULD FIT THE DESCRIPTIONS FOR A WOMAN'S COSMETIC IMPLEMENTS--AND WHEN SUCH A PIECE IS FOUND, THE DESCRIPTION OF EITHER FITS THE TOOL UNEARTHED. WE ALWAYS COMBINE SHIPPING AND WE NO LONGER SHIP OUTSIDE THE US.
