Late Bronze Age IIA; c. 1400-1300 BCE

Sitting on an applied foot, this juglet consists largely of an ovoid body as well as a cylindrical neck terminating in a flared rim and a handle applied from just below the rim of the vessel to the shoulder. Two horizontal painted bands, one above and one below the shoulder of the juglet, delineate the decorative field. Within that field, three groupings of four vertical bands have been added. This type of decoration was popular in the Late Bronze Age and can be found on a variety of wares of the period.

In excellent condition.

"So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites." (Exodus 3:8)
