Middle Bronze Age II B-C; c. 1730-1550 BCE

This vessel is wheel made with thin walls. The body is ovoid in shape with a wide neck and a folded rim. The feet of the krater are interesting in that they are actually three loop handles applied from the low part of the body to the base of the vessel thus adding an aesthetically pleasing touch to an entirely utilitarian vessel.

In very good condition with minor repair to the base.

Height: 17 cm high (6.7 inches); Rim diameter: 10 cm (4 inches)

Worldwide Shipping and Certificate of Authenticity Included in Price.

Export Approval from the Israel Antiquities Authority
