For sale is this authentic antique Indus Valley bowl or dish. This piece is made out of a tan clay pottery. It would have been molded/sculpted by hand and possibly using a wheel. Being from the Indus Valley, this piece was found in modern day Pakastan, or far Western India.
This piece was carefully hand painted by a skilled artisan long ago. It once had much more detail to it, however after being buried for so long, it is substantially worn. Notice also that there are some other chips, wear, paint flaws, and light issues with other parts of the dish. It is in good condition, but is an artifact so does show obvious signs of wear. This piece will have blemishes throughout.
Please be sure to study the photos carefully. I tried to photo any major flaws (so while every flaw isn't outlined here, the photos should corporately give you a really good idea of condition). The previous owner has had it in his collection for a couple of decades.It is guaranteed to be ethically acquired. This is an incredible piece and would make a perfect addition to any collection. Note that this is a guaranteed authentic piece, and is not just one of the cheap fakes on the market today. This is also an un-restored piece, but could be restored easily by a professional if you so choose. Some people choose to have them painted like the originals.
I personally preferred it to stay how it was found so I held off. It is a perfect display piece! Don't pass it up! Be sure to check over the details and look at all of the photos so you will know exactly what you'll get!
