Description
From their palaces in Greece, the Mycenaean civilization formed a mighty trade network throughout the Mediterranean region. Mycenaean ships, swift and strong, carried tradable goods to every major port. Mycenaean pottery, famed for its elegance, was prized everywhere as a standard for luxury. This charming little vase must have adorned the dressing table of a noble lady. If we hold it to our nose today, we can imagine the faint perfume of flowers that bloomed centuries ago. - (PF.2036)
