This is a wonderful example of early everyday pottery. The small red clay juglet with a bulbous body, wide round mouth, and small applied handle sits on a flat base.

Dimensions:  1 6/8 x 3 1/4 inches (4.5 x 8.2 cm)

Condition:  Intact and in excellent condition overall.

Provenance:  Private collection of Ambassador Morris Draper ( 1928-2005) and Mrs. Roberta Hornig Draper ( 1933-2021) acquired in Israel in the 1970s.

Ambassador Morris Draper, was a career diplomat and member of the State Department's Foreign Service for over 35 years. Ambassador Draper served the Department of State and the American people faithfully in diplomatic postings in the Near East, Europe, and East Asia, including as Consul General in Jerusalem and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs. He was a key player in the Camp David Peace Accords and the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty of 1979. From 1981-1983, he served as President Reagan's Special Middle East Envoy in negotiations regarding the withdrawal of foreign forces from Lebanon. In many ways our current efforts on behalf of a peaceful, sovereign, independent Lebanon build upon the work Ambassador Draper began over two decades ago.
