Persian bronze decorated goblet, 700 B.C.

This bronze goblet is richly decorated with incisions divided into three registers: the lower register with wavy lines, the intermediate register with palm-based plant decoration and the upper register repeating the wavy decoration of the lower register. Because of this type of decoration, it could not be an object of daily use but rather an object used for ritual purposes. The Ancient Persians were great producers of bronze, making all kinds of typologies, especially rituals and those made for wealthy families. The work that the ancient Persians did with bronze was one of the best that has been preserved from ancient civilizations.
