Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller scott0228 (15,607) 100%, Location: Stamford, Connecticut, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 312563085154 AUTHENTIC DIMINUTIVE ANCIENT GREEK OR ROMAN MOLDED TERRACOTTA PERHAPS TANAGRA FEMALE HEAD WITH NIQAB 1" TALL SHIP WORLDWIDE INCLUDING CHINA AND RUSSIA Offered in this sale is an antique - ancient - Egyptian, Greek or perhaps Roman terracotta head figure that looks to be a a woman wearing a Niqab. This comes from a collection assembled 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 1" tall x 1" wide x 7/8" deep. This appears to be solid so do not know if this is considered tanagra or there is another name to use for it. I have not handled enough of these artifacts to understand the nuance of knowledge needed to tell the difference precisely which area ie Greece, Egypt, Rome or century they were made, however, based on the provenance I have no reason to suspect that they are not "period". The fact that the figure is wearing a niqab suggests that it is Islamic and perhaps more likely Egyptian? The condition is as found which you can see in the images. It has a piece of the back side of the skull. 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 $3.50. I will be posting the other pieces from the collection separately for sale on Ebay over the coming days.
