Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller scott0228 (15,597) 100%, Location: Stamford, Connecticut, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 401743441839 AUTHENTIC ANCIENT GREEK OR ROMAN MOLDED TERRACOTTA PERHAPS TANAGRA FEMALE TORSO FRAGMENT 2 1/8" TALL C400 BC SHIP WORLDWIDE INCLUDING CHINA AND RUSSIA Offered in this sale is an antique - ancient - Greek or perhaps Roman terracotta seated female torso figure fragment that I believe dates circa the 3rd or 4th century BC. This comes from a collection formed in the early to mid 1900s by an Egyptologist / archaeologist so I have little doubt of its authenticity (see 8th image for other pieces in the collection which will all be posted individually on Ebay). It measures roughly 2 1/8" tall x 2" front to back. Unlike many of the other fragments in the collection, this piece is more heavy in relation to its size than the other pieces and appears to be "solid" vrs hollow molded. It is well sculpted. I do not know anything at all about ancient Greek and Roman antiquities so do not hesitate to send me a message if you would like additional images. I do not know if this is considered Tanagra or perhaps the construction and material is indicative of another area and or era, ie. Greek vrs Roman vrs Egyptian. I have not handled enough of these artifacts to understand the nuance of knowledge needed to tell the difference. The condition is as found which you can see in the images. If you look at the 5th image you will note a line across the right buttocks. I question if this is perhaps a very old repair or was caused by setting it down too hard. Also, when you look closely at the 5th image you will see that on stub of the right leg where it missing there is a tiny painted BO in black. This code appears on a few of the other pieces in this collection. It could be a clue of previous provenance. Please be sure to enlarge and zoom each image for a close up view of the detail and the condition and do not hesitate to send me a message if you have questions or would like additional images. I always guarantee everything that I sell to be as described. This piece is being sold without a reserve as long as there is an opening bid. The shipping cost within the United States is $4.00. I will be posting the other pieces from the collection separately for sale on Ebay over the coming days. If you are interested in more than one item I do offer combined shipping which saves on postage.
