A Cypriot Pottery Zoomorphic Avian Bichrome Juglet, Late Iron Ave, Cypro-Acrhaic 8th Century BCE. In form of duck or bird with line painting across side and back. On tripod legs with head as spout of juglet. 5 1/4" H x 6 1/4" L x 3 3/4" w. Intact and in excellent condition. Ex: Archaeological Center Ltd. Tel Aviv - Jaffe. According to the Semitic Museum of Harvard University, Iron Age Cypriot pottery was...colorful and often elaborately painted with geometric or figural motifs. Intricate "Free-field" compositions graced juglets and jars. Ubiquitous concentric circles were applied to jars, juglets, bowls and kraters using multiple brushes. Finer wares like plates, bowls and jugs were made on the fast wheel, while larger forms like amphoras, amphoroid kraters and pithoi were built with a combination of techniques: wheel throwing, hand coiling or molding.
