Guest Book
An extremely rare and quite fabulous Egyptian or Near Eastern storage jar or urn, Dating to the late 4th.- 3rd. millenium BC.

This vessel is extremely large and has survived the ages in intact condition!

The vessel in red terracotta with some sea-encrustations still present on the surface. three very small lung handles and decorated with concenthric lines. It stands on a low round base-ring.

Size: The diameter of this extraordinay sizable vessel is 34 cm. The height is close to 30 cm. - a massive piece for the period!

Provenance: The vessel was once in the collection of Frederikke Tichener and was cleaned and conserved by the Danish National Museum from a completely encrusted sea-find! We have the original conservation-report, dating to 1984, explaining the procedures by conservator Ruth Frandsen.
