Ancient Middle East (Hebron, Israel): Middle Bronze age zoomorphic pottery vessel standing on four short legs, with double handled spout in the center of his back, and short pointed tail, probably representing a ram with pouring hole incorporated in his mouth. Several areas of mineral deposits on the surface and restoration around the rim spout, restored right front leg. Hebron, the find spot, is the site of the oldest Jewish community in the world, dating back to Biblical times.

Friedenberg was a curator of the Jewish Museum of NYC from 1944-1979. Moshe Dayan, the great Israeli military leader, was also an amateur archaeologist. It was his practice to sign antiquities for collectors in the 1960’s. Upon his death in 1981, his extensive archaeological collection was sold to the state of Israel.
