A huge prehistoric gable seal, one of the largest known, Mesopotamia or Syria, ca. 5th.-4th. millenium BC.

A rectangular seal in hard black Serpentine stone, engraved with two stags. Wonderful quality engraving and the medium among the best of the early period. With it's approx 7 cm. in length and 4 cm. wide, one of the absolutely largest early seals in existence. We checked the Erlenmeyer collection and could only find one other seal larger than this, of another type of decoration.

Condition: Superb.

Ex. German Collection (Berlin), collected from the 1980s and onwards.

Comes with collectors own notes and photos along with a hard wax impression.
