Description
In antiquity, this cup was a functional object, perhaps used to measure wine, oil or grain in a wealthy household. Its practical purpose, however, seems secondary when compared to its beauty, and the elegance of its shape. The history of civilization has been a long search to make life better, to raise the human lot above the ordinary. The ancients understood that attention to even the smallest detail, like a household cup, was important. - (PF.0192)
