EGYPTIAN BRECCIA LUG VESSEL


EGYPTIAN BRECCIA LUG VESSEL

superbly crafted white breccia vessel, the soft, aggregate stone comprising a variety of grey to black inclusions in a soft cream matrix. The elegant form is characteristic of early dynastic stone vases, the perforated twin horizontal lug handles placed on the shoulders, the rounded rim offset, on a flat base, the interior well hollowed. Vessels such as this example were highly prized in antiquity and were probably used to store valuable and exotic perfumed oils or ointments.
