Description
When we hold this elegant little frit (or faience) vessel in our hands we cannot help but wonder who might have held it just so centuries ago, and raised it to their lips to drink. Surely that long-vanished individual would have stopped to admire the purity of its form, the flower-like shape. For a moment, we are linked directly to that unknown person who lived during Egypt's Golden Age. - (PF.0043)
