Antiquities of
the Levant

 

Available Now

Unparalleled Opportunity – A long-standing Israel based antiquities business is making its collections available for purchase - preferably on a wholesale, single transaction basis.

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.

Business Collection

The 5,000+/- items in this collection include glassware, pottery, scarabs, tools, weapons, jewelry, and coins (gold, silver, bronze). Included with the first photo to the left are a number of silver shekels from about the 1st century time period.

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.

Personal Collection

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 here. 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.

Added Collection

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 (at the lower left corner of this page).

All are available, preferably as a combined collection. The legacy of a time unlike any other.
