Ancient Egyptian "Rare Double Ankh Offertory Amphora"
on eBay by seller "A"
The above listed item is from the Ptolemaic Period,(332-30 B.C.E.). This lovely "Ankh Offertory Vessel" was clay thrown, faience glazed and detailed in black paint. We acquired this unique piece from a select private collection and its provenance is from Alexandria, Egypt. Depicted on this offertory container are two decorated handles having two intact Ankh symbols that have been detailed with black paint! On one side of this urn, there are two rows of black painted hieroglyphics with the other side, having a black painted winged scarab and a row or glyphs! This type of jar was used for libations, spices or unguents and then placed in the tomb with the deceased. This rare amphora-like urn is intact and has retained much of its blue faience glaze with age wear. The reason for the item being available is due to the vast extent of archeological findings, thousands of years in Egyptian burials and also the proliferation of these said items in older private collections worldwide.
