Description
This beautiful Egyptian pilgrim flask epitomizes the ancient Egyptian artist's ability to combine material, form and function in a most aesthetically pleasing way. The handles form two delicately balanced loops that echo the curvilinear lines of the body. The lovely turquoise color has been enhanced over time, at once evidencing a subtle aging process and heightening the complexity of the finish. To own this charming vessel is to carry on a tradition of aesthetic appreciation that began thousands of years ago. - (GF.0309)
