Description
Who held this delicate vessel so long ago during the sunset of the Classical world? Did it sit perhaps among the cosmetics of a beautiful lady, who might have applied the dark kohl or ground malachite once held within to her eyelids? Today, this rare jar holds only the power to intrigue us, to take our imaginations on voyages to places that have long since vanished into the shadows of time. - (PF.0136)
