Early Armenia, c. 1000 BC. Fantastic large ceramic pot. Nice round thumb-handle on rim, great design of multiple incised ridges around upper body. Black color indicates it was probably burned in antiquity. Intact except for a small hairline age crack on one edge. 155 mm (6 1/4") wide and 97 mm (3 3/4") tall. A beautiful piece! From my own personal collection. #arm271039: $499 SOLD
