Canaanite Alabaster Offering Dish

Lot 0031A Details

Description
Holy Land, ca. 1st millennium BCE. A breathtaking carved alabaster vessel of a remarkably perfect circular form with a rounded base and a flared rim. The alabaster shows beautiful pink, cream, and beige hues with a subtle striated patterning to the inclusions. This offering dish was created by the Canaanites. Canaanite is a biblical term that identifies the people who lived in the land of Israel before the Israelites. The Torah and other historical books suggest that the Canaanites were not one ethnic group, but rather comprised of various groups including the Perizzites, the Hittites, and the Hivites. A special example from the Holy Land. Size: 4.75" in diameter x .75" H (12.1 cm x 1.9 cm)

Provenance: Ex - private Richard F collection,New York.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
