Ancient Wine Cup - the 'Holy Grail' Ref: GRAIL

Forget what you've read in The Da Vinci Code - could THIS be the true Holy Grail?

Most Grail researchers, including Arthurian expert Richard Cavendish, agree that the true Grail of myth and legend was likely to have been a type of cup. Later legends tell us that this cup was reputedly that which held the holy blood of Christ at the Last Supper. And as fans of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade will know, the real Grail used at the Last Supper would have not been the splendid, jewel-encrusted gold chalice as commonly depicted, but a small, plain and humble wine cup - just like this one. And we're giving you a chance to own it.

This beautiful bronze cup really is ancient, dating from the early Roman era, which places it at about the same time as Jesus. Miraculously, it has remained perfectly intact after 2000 years has developed a wonderful blue-green patina. In some places, the sparkling iridescence of the bronze can be seen through the patina, giving the cup a slight shimmering appearance from certain angles. It measures 43mm in height.

Is this really the Holy Grail? Perhaps not, but it is an ancient wine cup typical of those used at the time of Jesus - if the Holy Grail as used in the Last Supper did exist, it would have almost certainly looked like this.

Whether Holy or not, this cup is a fabulous and exquisite piece of ancient history, and is both rare and precious in its own right.

Ancient Wine Cup - the 'Holy Grail'


Ancient Egyptian Statue of OsirisAncient Egyptian Statue of Osiris Ref: STAT01
Rare and in very high demand, we have finally acquired a genuine ancient Egyptian statue, dating back to 500BC!

The bronze statue, perfectly intact even after 2,500 years, depicts a mumiform Osiris, the Egyptian God of Death and Lord of the Underworld. As typically portrayed, he holds a long crook and flail and wears a plumed atef crown with a frontal uraeus, symbolic of his power.

The statue has a fine blue-green patina and has been professionally "museum cleaned." It is mounted on wooden stand (easily removable).

We can only speculate what this statue was used for for, but considering that it depicts the God of Death, it may have stood as a holy idol in a temple.

Replica Egyptian statues are hugely popular and can sell for hundreds of pounds - here, we're offering the real thing, created in ancient land of pharaohs and pyramids thousands of years ago.

Size: 10.5 cm

Solid Gold Ancient Roman Apollo Pendant Ref: ROMPEN03
This stunning pendant pays true tribute to the skill of the goldsmiths of ancient Rome.

Expertly crafted in gold sheet, the pendant features the intricately detailed face of an androgynous youth - very likely to be Apollo, the Greek and Roman God of the Sun and one of the revered of all the gods. The face is surrounded by a laurel-leaf border, laurel being a prominent symbol of both Apollo and nobility in ancient Rome. There were many ancient Roman temples devoted to Apollo, and this pendant may have belonged to a devotee of great wealth and status - perhaps even a temple priest.

The pendant displays a technique known as Repousse: ornamental work produced on sheet gold with a hammer and punches, in which the design was embossed from the back of the metal.

This piece dates as far back as circa 2nd-3rd century and yet, after 2000 years, it is still in perfect condition. It is fully wearable and is supplied with a generous length of tough modern black waxed cord.

The pendant weighs approx. 4g and measures approx. 3.5cm x 2.5cm.

An absolute masterpiece.

Massive & Rare Archangel Michael Pendant SOLD Ref: stmichael
This is a truely stunning piece - it is a massive and rare 16/17th Century double sided bronze figure depicting the Archangel Michael.

Michael is the archangel mentioned in the Book of Revelation 12:7; in the Old Testament Michael is mentioned by name in the Persian context of the post-Exilic Book of Daniel. He is generally presented as the field commander of the Army of God. There Michael appears as "one of the chief princes" who in Daniels vision comes to the angel Gabriels aid in his contest with the angel of Persia. Michael is one of the principal angel Abrahamic tradition; his name is said to have beent he war cry of the angels in the battle fought in heaven against satan and his followers.

St Michael together with St George became the patron of chivalry, and the patron of the first chivalric order of France, the Order of St Michael of 1469. In the British honours system, a chivalric order founded in 1818 is also named for these two saints, the Order of St Michael and St George. St Michael is also considered in many Christian circles as the patron saint of the Warrior. Police officers and soldiers, particularly paratroopers, regard him as their patron saint.

Catholics refer to him as Saint Michael the Archangel and also simply as Saint Michael while Orthodox Christians refer to him as the Taxiarch Archangel Michael or simply archangel Michael.

Intact and uncleaned, with deep green/brown patina. Swings freely from original pendant loop, supplied with a generous length of tough waxed modern cord.
