Roman Imperial 16K Gold / Glass Earrings, 8.1 gr
Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. A pair of unique, matching earrings that demonstrate the skill of Roman goldsmiths. Made from 16K gold, each has an upside-down teardrop form, divided into four, with pale, translucent glass inlays. These have a thick gold border studded at regular intervals with large granulations. They join the hooped clasp, with the joins wrapped in tight coils of very fine gold wire. Size: 1.65" H (4.2 cm); 8.1 grams Roman women - especially of the upper classes - had their ears pierced and wore one set of earrings. Jewelry was particularly important to women in Roman society because it was legally their own property, independent of their husband's wealth, and they could use it as they saw fit.

Nazca Polychrome Vessel - Warrior with Trophy Head
Pre-Columbian, South Coast Peru, Nazca, ca. 125 to 250 CE. A round-bottomed anthropomorphic effigy pottery jar depicting a fierce and apparently victorious warrior figure holding a trophy head in one hand and a weapon in the other, hand-painted in a polychrome color scheme of red, brown, tan, orange, black, and white hues. The lively visage features a modeled nose, ears, and striped ornaments with boldly delineated facial features and mask or tattoos. He dons a fanciful tunic with a ridged collar and base trim. A special example of Nazca pottery, instantly recognizable as Nazca for its bold lines and wide range of strong colors.

Lot of 3 Ban Chiang / Cambodian Bronze Ladles
Southeast Asia, Cambodia, ca. 10th to 14th century CE; Thailand, Ban Chiang culture, 300 BCE to 200 CE. A set of three cast bronze ladles with large bowls and handles. Longest ladle is from the Ban Chiang culture, has high copper content, and has crawling lizard near bowl.  Here's a nerdy factoid for you: Archaeologists have found that the ancient metal smiths of northern Thailand preferred bronze to copper, as bronze could be made much harder than copper. This said, archaeologists have found that the bronze of Ban Chiang was not in fact much harder than copper. So why bother to go through the complex process of smelting and adding copper?  Apparently, the Ban Chiang artisans prized color rather than metal's ability to be hardened. Note that even in its aged state, we can appreciate the blue-green patina making its presence known on the surfaces of these ladles!  Size: from 5-3/8" to 9-1/2"L. Provenance: Ex-private D. Smith collection, California, acquired before 1985. 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. #100172 Artemis Gallery
Roman Bronze Hinged Hand Mirror
Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 1st to 5th century CE. Wow! What amazing condition for this ancient piece. A cast bronze hand mirror with applied bronze faces and looping handles. A functional hinge attaches a cover to the mirror. The reflective surface is no longer present, but it may have been made of blown glass. The Romans called mirrors "speculum" from "specere", to look or behold, and mirrors held an important place in the toilette of any fashionable Roman man or woman, and the handle means that it was used to travel. The high level of craftsmanship and the sheer amount of bronze on this piece suggests that this belonged to an elite citizen; the applied faces may represent gods, a famous Roman, or possibly even the owner. Comes with custom stand. Size: 12" L when opened; 4.45" W x 6.25" H (30.5 cm x 11.3 cm x 15.9 cm) Provenance: Ex-Private Orange County, CA collection 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. We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience. #118052 Artemis Gallery
