In the seventh century B.C., the manufacture of sand-core vessels was revived in large scale in Egypt and the Near East. Although the techniques and colours suggest imitations of the New Kingdom vessels, new non-Egyptian forms were introduced to reflect the development of Greek pottery shapes.
The form of this vessel is typical of glass amphoriskoi of the Hellenistic period. Characteristic of this type are the elongated neck and the extensive body decoration.
This vessel has a flaring rim, a long cylindrical neck, an elongated piriform body and a knob base. Attached are two handles between the shoulder and the top of the neck. Yellow trail wounds spiral around the body and neck of the vessel forming a feather-like pattern.
Vessels of this type were produced until the first century B.C.
