Background: The Ancient Holy Land produced pottery which, while frequently exceedingly handsome, was generally functional in design and manufacture, as dictated by the country's economic needs in trade and in the home. The country lacked the luxury loving ruling classes and the lavish kingdoms in Babylonia, Assyria, Egypt, Crete, and Cyprus. But it enjoyed a flourishing international trade with them all. Pottery vessels of specific designs were needed throughout the ancient Near East for its principal exports
