Priceless Past

This is a bangle or disc made from what I believe to be calcite. I am listing this and several other items that were part of the Chad Herrington collection.

This was possibly from the Ban Chiang culture. The stone appears chalky but solid and stable. It measures roughly 10 cm across the outside diameter and rou ...click for details

Ancient Egyptian Bronze Dagger

Priceless Past



$1195 

This is an ancient bronze dagger from the middle east, possibly Egypt. The apparent high-copper content of the alloy and the general design put it prior to 1200 BCE.Bronze weapons were not made in ancient Egypt until after 2000 BC near the end of the Old Kingdom. It wasn’t until the Hyksos invasion of Egypt and their subsequent overthrow(circa 1550 BC), that the Egyptians began large scale production of bronze weapons using technologies learned from the Hyksos and neighboring cultures.
