Description
This delicate little vessel probably once contained cosmetics: oils to make the skin soft, or kohl to bring out the luster of dark eyes. Centuries ago, it was perhaps among the prized possessions of some ancient beauty, a lady such as we see laughing in the lively paintings of the New Kingdom. When we place our fingers where those ancient ones once rested, we are linked, magically, with the spirit of that long-vanished life. - (P.0591)
