Price: $3 250
Artemis Gallery

Roman , Sidonian, Lebanon, ca. 1st century CE.

A fine mold-blown miniature Janus-headed flask representing Bacchus with bunches of round grapes for hair in gorgeous amber hued glass with marvelous iridescence. Note how the mold was carefully crafted to delineate intricate detailing of the visages and the fruit. Sidon was a center of art glass production in ancient times. Here are Pliny's words as he described his voyage to Sidon: ''From this point on we must go back to the coast and to Phoenicia. There was formerly a town called Crocodilian, and there still is a river of that nameâ€. Then comes Cape Carmelâ. Next are Getta, Geba, and the river Pacida or Belusâ. Close to this river is Ptolemaisâ. Next Tyre, once an island separated from the mainland by a very deep sea-channel 700 yards wide, but now joined to it by the works constructed by Alexander when besieging the place†but the entire renown of Tyre now consists in a shell-fish and a purple dye!â€. Next are Zarephath and the city of birds (Ornithon oppidum), and Sidon, the mother-city of Thebes in Boeotia where glass is made.'' (Pliny, Natural History V.75-76, 77-79 A.D.€)

Price: $5 250
Artemis Gallery

Pre-Columbian, Panama, Cocle, ca. 800-1000 CE.

A rare and brilliant example from the Gran Cocle Pre-Columbian kingdom of Central America. This pedestal dish depicts a lizard-like zoomorphic figure painted in the phantasmic style that was the penchant of artists of the Cocle region. The introduction of purple to the artist's palette of red, black, and cream attributes it to the Conte/Macaracas style of pottery. According to scholar Samuel Kirkland Lothrop, "The Gran Cocle culture is a Pre-Columbian archaeological culture that gets its name from the area from which it was based, the now present-day Cocle province of Panama. The Gran Cocle term applies to a loosely studied group of Native American sub-cultures in this region, identified by their pottery styles. The overall period spans a time from 150 B.C. to the end in the 16th century A.D. upon Spanish contact. The most ancient culture is the La Mula period from 150 B.C. to 300 A.D. The La Mula and later Monagrillo and Tonosí pottery styles are identified by their the use of three paint colors which were black, red and white (or cream). The later Cubitá style saw the emergence of the use of four colors. The styles of Conte, Macaracas and Joaquín added purple to their palette and this hue ranged from grayish tones to red purple. The use of purple disappeared in the subsequent styles of Parita and El Altillo and the paint style reverted back to the use of three colors. Most notable in the artistic renderings are the overt use of geometric designs."
