Description
Created in the age of David and Solomon, this graceful vessel must once have held a precious fluid such as balm or perfume. From a flask such as this Bathsheba might have poured scented oil into her bath while being observed by king David. Because of its elegant simplicity, free from all unnecessary details, its appeal is timeless. We can never know for certain through whose hands it passed so long ago, but in its presence we are directly in touch with the Biblical past. - (P.0500)
