Reference: EV2102

Culture: Egyptian

Medium: Red breccia

Dimensions: Height: 3 inches (7.5 cm)

Superbly crafted red breccia vessel, the soft, aggregate stone comprising a variety of light beige inclusions in a red-pink matrix. The elegant form is characteristic of early middle kingdom stone vases; the hand-polished conical body tapering to the flat base, with projecting rim and sharply offset lip, the interior well hollowed. Vessels such as this example were highly prized in antiquity and were probably used to store valuable and exotic perfumed oils or ointments.

Condition: Professionally rejoined from two large original pieces, having an almost invisible break line. A few small ancient lip and base rim chips. An elegant example.

Provenance: Ex. Royal-Athena Galleries, NYC., ex. J.M. Eisenberg private collection, NY, item #BLT05JE: acquired at Bonhams, London, 12/1992.
