Achaemenid Persian terra cotta effigy vessel representing a camel. 5th-4th century BC. 5 1/4" x 5" long. The body of the vessel is 2 7/8" diameter. 10 1/2 oz. The turned vessel body rests on a tripod of legs, and is open at top and front. There are four pierced lugs and another hole at the back of the neck- for suspension or perhaps to attach a votive burden. Loose but lively modeling. From a Chicago 'Gold Coast' collection, inherited from an old Boston estate. Details to purchaser.
