Description
In the ancient world, even the most common household objects were imbued with a graceful beauty. This splendid little spouted vase was most likely used to fill lamps with oil. As we grip its handle and tip it gently today, we are echoing the gestures of those who first held it centuries ago. Like those forgotten individuals, we are charmed by its simple grace, by its elegant blending of form and function. Across the barriers of time, we share an emotion and make contact with a vanished world. - (PF.2146)
