Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller scott0228 (15,598) 100%, Location: Stamford, Connecticut, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 312558459982 AUTHENTIC ANCIENT GREEK OR ROMAN MOLDED TERRACOTTA PERHAPS TANAGRA TORSO FRAGMENT 2" TALL C400 BC SHIP WORLDWIDE INCLUDING CHINA AND RUSSIA Offered in this sale is an antique - ancient - Greek or perhaps Roman terracotta muscular 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 9th image for other pieces in the collection which will all be posted individually on Ebay). It measures roughly 2" tall x 1 3/4" wide. Unlike many of the other fragments in the collection, this piece is more heavy in relation to its size than the other pieces. If you look closely even with the age wear you will note the well defined molding of the muscles both on the front and back. 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. Its a neat little piece. The condition is as found which you can see in the images. 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. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BLACK WOOD STAND I USED FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH IN THE FIRST TWO PICTURES IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS SALE. IT A STAND FROM ANOTHER PIECE THAT WAS IN THE BOX THE COLLECTION HAD BEEN STORED IN THAT I JUST USED TO STAGE THE PICTURE. 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. The last four images illustrate just a few of the many other items I have or will be posting separately soon for sale on Ebay from several different estate collections including a cranberry overlay cut glass flask, a number of genuine 4th century BC Greek Tanagra remnants and figures, a number of pieces of Wedgwood Jasperware and other vintage Wedgwood china, Meissen porcelain, KPM porcelain, Rosenthal porcelain and an assorted lot of Victorian to mid century jewelry, a small collection of 19th and early 20th century Chinese and Japanese porcelain and ceramics, Royal Doulton and Royal Aynsley china, Scandinavian art glass, a number of stereoview cards, antique photo album and photographs, Nippon, California pottery, old U.S. and World Stamps, a number of piece of vintage Chinese Cultural Revolution memorabilia, Soviet Russian and Chinese Cultural Revolution pins and caps, American and Continental art pottery, a Werner Jacobsen pottery New Hope Pa artist colony mug along with an eclectic mix of other 18th - 20th century American, English, Continental and Chinese ceramics, porcelain, glass and accessories.
