Item:254371647868This wonderful early Iron Age Urartu culture Eastern Anatolian circa 950-800 BC terracotta serving bowl that has several hand incised lines, two deeply and seven lightly incised,on the upper half of the bowl. Incredible art work). Based on a study done by Aylin Erdem of Ege University, Izmir University in Turkey titled Regional Variations of Iron Age Pottery Eastern Anatolia a piece of pottery like this one is from the Basur Hoyuk region. Its design under the rim and the spacing and postion of the two heavy lines indicate that it is frpm that general area. It is made of grey clay and has been fired without allowing oxygen (reduced) in the firing process which gives it a grey/black shine. The bowl is 3" tall and 6 1/2" wide. It has a small circular foot that is 2 1/2" in diameter. From that small foot the bowl flares outward to a shoulder that is 6 1/2" wide, curves slightly inward where all the incised design work is and then flares outward to a rim that is 6" in diameter. The bowl is 100% intact --no chips or repairs. However as you can see in the pictures there is use wear on the bottom and the insides. The bowl was purchased from a gallery in Amerstoort, The Netherlands in 2007. It is an excellent example of early Urartian Kingdom pottery.Provenance:Ownership History Not Available, Material:Iron, Color:Black
