 A very fine Sumerian zoomorphic stamp seal.

 



This rather lovely recumbent bovine seal, pierced through
and showing five lions on its base



illustrates how soft stone can be vulnerable to fracture!



A good restorer would be able to repair it without much
evidence of damage remaining.



I could have had it repaired but thought then any
prospective new owner would not know for certain how essentially complete it
is.



 



As seen. 29mm x 22mm



 



Jemdet Nasr Period circa 3000 BC.



 



From my own collection. Ex German collection.



Price: 875 GBP
