Description: A large bronze strainer with long handle, Byzantine, c. 6th - 8th Century AD, hammered from a single piece of metal. The bowl is punched with holes for draining and nicely incised with a central flower or rosette, within a circular border; enhanced with rows of hammered circles, each with a central pellet. The handle is of much thicker construction and decorated with the circle-pellet devices as well as two sets of incised parallel lines near the base; the end curled to allow suspension of the strainer when not in use. L: 19 1/8 in (48.3 cm). Amazing state of preservation. Ex Los Angeles private collection.

Condition Report: The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.
