Description
When the Roman Empire was in its sunset, this elegantly simple vessel contained perfumed waters to be sprinkled on celebrants at some unknown rite. Today it seems redolent with a faint, lovely scent of melancholy--as if wondering why great monuments crumble, but a delicate glass vessel remains intact. - (G.0097)
