Egyptian Wide-mouthed Jar, Late Period
Almost exactly one foot tall, this ancient Egyptian red ware, wide-mouthed jar (102.68HD) is intact and in overall good condition. It does have a small cluster of radiating stress cracks on the inner wall (they just barely reach the outer surface), one area of surface erosion probably caused by partial exposure to the elements (oval shaped and about four inches in diameter), and a fair amount of shallow surface pitting. None of the foregoing affects the stability or decorative quality of this large piece. Long on display at the former Collectors’ Memorial Museum in Farmington, New Mexico, this piece, along with others in a small collection, were brought out of Egypt in the 1930s by a Merchant Mariner. The group was authenticated for the owners of the museum by a contract archeologist. The ancient Egyptian potter collected the red clayey silt from which the jar was made from the banks of the sacred Nile River. The jar comes with a grapevine ring to set it upon, a small display card, a write-up about the old Collectors’ Museum, a copy of the authentication papers from the archeologist, and a guarantee of authenticity by HD Enterprises.
