Ex. V. Yarborough-Richards, retired anthropology professor at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC. Acquired by Professor Richards from a colleague at Wake Forest who personally dug these and other similar pieces in Egypt in the early 1960s while on an archeological salvage expedition during the construction of the Aswan Dam.
$1250 for both. Not for sale individually.
Two very rare and early, pre-Dynastic Egyptian terracotta vessels dating to the Neolithic – Naqada II Period. Typical of the type found at Malkata and around the Fayoum. Rounded spherical bodies narrowing at the neck then widening to a flared rim. The surface is textured, what Petrie would have categorized as Type M, or rough-faced pottery. Moderate deposits and some surface encrustation as would be expected. In very good condition. Vessel 1 (left) – An unusually large example and has four small rim chips missing, otherwise intact. Vessel 2 (right) – Intact with a few stabilized cracks at the bottom. Both are completely original with no restoration.
