Unparalleled Opportunity – A long-standing Israel based antiquities business makes its collections available for purchase.

Representing ancient civilizations of the Levant including early bronze and Canaanite, later bronze and iron age Israelite, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic, three collections are available for a qualified purchaser:

  • Business collection – approximately 5,000 items ranging from ancient coins to pottery and glassware.
  • Personal collection – another 2,000+/- items with focus on fine pottery of the Middle East.
  • Added collection – signature antiquities of unparalleled value.

This 2-page overview provides a sampling of what is being made available for the first time. Link is at: Antiquities of the Levant

Secure this legacy for generations to come. See back page for contact information – to further pursue this one-of-a kind opportunity. 


The 5,000+/- items in this collection include glassware, pottery, scarabs, tools, weapons, jewelry, and coins (gold, silver, bronze).

The collection has been inventoried to address requirements of the Israel Antiquities Authority. Certificates
of authenticity will be provided together with assistance with export permit arrangements for items to be shipped outside of Israel.  



Over many decades, the Owner/Seller has built a substantial personal collection of approximately 2,000 items. Primarily pottery, just a portion of which is depicted on this page.

Due to wide diversity of provenance – in terms of culture and era of manufacture represented – the Seller has agreed to make available the services of a well-recognized archaeologist of Palestine to assist with further research and documentation.

This generous offer of assistance is available across all three collections.


The story of the Levant is carried via myriad strands of history – a web of cultures, sacred and profane.

Being made available is an added collection representing the finest of Greco-Roman and Judaic civilizations, from the Greek Eros to a Roman stone eagle – from the head to the foot of Middle Eastern history.

And anchoring it all is the voice of an age-long Judaic tradition – perhaps best exemplified by a circular Temple menorah of the Herodian era.
All are available, preferably as a combined collection. The legacy of a time unlike any other. 

An extra feature of the Added Collection comprises inscribed scroll fragments
as pictured above.

Requested is a lump sum payment or a down-payment and installments timed to coincide with merchandise shipments. Escrowed funds will be handled in the U.S. or as otherwise agreed through an independent third party pursuant to instructions mutually agreed by the purchaser, Seller, and Hovee.

The purchase price will include the transaction fee as well as shipping cost. Shipping including offsets for any damage is the Seller’s responsibility.
