Description
This graceful vessel perhaps sat on the dressing table of a lady of fashion during the flower of the classical age. Then it may have contained fine oils or rare perfumes to enhance the beauty of its owner. The simple but elegant decoration and slender shape of this little lekythos still delight the senses, as they no doubt appealed to its original owner so long ago. The beauty of such a piece, truly classic, is timeless. - (PF.0055)
