Description
The graceful form of this splendid vessel achieves a sculptural perfection. It speaks of an age-old fondness for luxury unadorned with extraneous detail. Containing precious perfumes or balms, it surely belonged to some woman of the ancient world whose skin echoed its luminous beauty. When we hold it as she did, we delight also in its cool and pleasing contours. - (PF.1029)
