Item:253835606213This is a beautiful and rare middle bronze age Mycenaean (Mycenaean Type) terracotta pyxis with applied handles. It stands about 3" tall and is 4" wide--handle to handle. It was found in the Jordan Valley and was purchased from a private collector in 2005. It dates to about 2000 BC. It has a short neck with single line designs going from the upper part of the shoulder to the rim. The rim flares out and is about 2" in diameter. The rim has two very ols chips on it. The side of the pyxis from the shoulder down has more single line wide spaced design down the side. In looking at it I can see evidence of additional design work but very faded and very hard to see. There are two small poke holes on the upper shoulder plus expected age and use wear, Overall condition is excellent. The bottom as can be seen has more spaced line circles which is typical of Mycenaean pottery. Just a beautiful and rare piece.
