What does this mean?

Dear Gioia,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a clay pull toy the measurements of approximately 6 inches or 15 cm wide x 3.5 inches tall. This idol depicts a bull with his horns and the holes in the body for the wooden joints of the wheels are clearly visible. Comparable pieces are dated from the period of the Mesopotamian cultures.

Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market. 
This piece is in damaged condition and there is damage visible in the images.
A fair market estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on recently recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards, 

George

This pottery carcass is thought to be part of a very early Mesopatamia 'pull toy'.

Native seller stated that it had been ploughed up from agricultural endeavours in South - East present day Turkey.
