    CANAANITE. Early Bronze Age, circa 3000-2300 BCE. Terracotta spouted vessel. Of buff red and brown clay with whitish limestone slip, ovoid form, 6 inches (15.24 cm) in diameter, with broad mouth, flat base, loop handle and short, open, flaring spout. The midsection delicately and attractively decorated with a row of incised chevrons. Expertly restored from three large fragments. For a related example, see R. Amiran, Ancient Pottery of the Holy Land, page 200, photo 212.

    From The Living Torah Museum Collection; ex Michael Kaufman Collection, acquired by private donation.

    Pottery of ancient Palestine, termed Canaanite in its earliest form, was generally functional in design and manufacture, as dictated by the economic needs of the region, which lacked the luxury-loving wealthy classes in the nearby kingdoms of Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Crete and Cyprus.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
