Description
Perhaps carrying oil or precious spices, this small container could have once held something of importance far beyond this unobtrusive bottle would have us believe. Delicate to the touch and showing the faintest touch of paints, we are awed by its history. How many ancient hands handled this container? How prized was the treasure within its walls? It is thrilling to ponder the possibilities. - (PF.2832)
