1/1b Appears to be bronze, possibly Greek/ luristan. vessel for heating beverage. Probably circa 1,000/1,500 B.C.2. Seen this shape before, but can't remember where. Possibly small cuspidor (?) or small Greek door knob.(3) Rather similar to previous one. Possibly a little earlier.(4) Bronze storage jar, Roman. Circa 500 to 800 B.c. Objects of this sort are notoriously difficult to judge, without some suggestion as to size.
1. You're in the right general area Mike, but a bit early.2. Egyptian & Greek cultures were quite close technically & medically but this one came from Egypt and wasn't a door-knob.3. Roman and later but for the same purpose; note that the Romans had dropped the use of the rim which is ergonomically important for a cupping vessel, giving a better seal to the skin when applied.4. Greek I'm afraid Mike and a bit later and I take your point about size which was not supplied with the images.
I would say last one is a Greek Urn. Ça 100BC joke.
I'll allow that one Rog, you've urned it.
First one is Elamite Bronze Beaker - approx 8C BCOld enough for Mike to class it as an antique I would suggest ;-)
Your right Rog, I love the subtle curves of this Elamite piece but Solomon sang of his preference for a Shulamite.
I'm no expert but they were catalogued thus:-1a &1b Elamite bronze beaker 800-600BC2. bronze cupping vessel, Egypt 300BC - 300AD3. bronze Roman cupping vessel 1st century AD4. bronze cupping cup, ancient Greece 400-100BC
