Asia Week auction, WTF10: Afghanistan – bronze rhyton ‘precisely documented’, except for who, when, where, how…

The Dalton Somaré Gallery claims that it is ‘able to offer collectors and connoisseurs precisely documented objects of art of high aesthetic quality’. It is, thus, unfortunate and curious that it does not offer any information about the origins of any of its three flagship pieces, one of which is a more-than-2,200-year-old bronze rhyton from Afghanistan.

When, where and how was this found?

Who exported and imported it?

When was it exported and imported?

By which route was it exported/imported?

Rhyton. Herat area, Afghanistan, 3rd Century BC. Bronze. 5.5 inches (14 cm).
