Extremely rare blue glass Moabite scaraboid seal.



Glass is very rarely found with Phoenician, Edomite,
Israelite, or Moabite seals.



Dark blue glass, probably mould made rather than cut.



Shows the typical four winged  angelic figure generally holding  floral stalks in its hands as a sign of
fertility.



Intact.  19mm x
14mm x 7mm.



Circa 6th- 7th century BC



Ex Shlomo Moussaieff collection.



He once said in an interview:



'Museums put everything in storage. My wife should
auction my collections to people who will not put them in cellars but will love
them like I do.'

Northwest Semitic Inscribed Seals 1993, OBO 125.: CH6 Stefan Timm.



 



Many of North West Semitic seals in his collection have
been published, but as this one  bears no
inscription it was not published.
