Description
Perhaps this delightfully simple vessel once belonged among the perfumes and cosmetics of a fashionable beauty of the Roman era. With slender fingers, she would have applied its soothing contents to her soft skin. Today, the empty jar seems radiant with the memory of the loveliness it witnessed long ago, so much so that it has become a rare treasure itself. - (G.0096)
