Description
This charming vessel was created on the island of Cyprus for export to the cities of the Levant. Though small, it is rendered with a fine attention to detail that suggests it held important contents, perhaps oil, balm or medicine. Its decoration is simple but elegant, as appealing to modern sensibilities as it no doubt was to ancient ones. As we hold this exquisite vessel in our hands today, we share our pleasure with those who first held it so long ago. Across time we are united by a common bond, a fleeting emotion. - (PF.2192)
