Description
At the height of the classical age, some well- born woman adorned herself with fragrance contained in this slender vase. It was perhaps attar of roses, or jasmine, and was no doubt costly, as rare things have always been. If we hold it to our nose--as she did so long ago--we can almost smell those ancient flowers as we lose ourselves in the sad, sweet perfume of reverie. - (G.0119)
