Seller: artancientltd (9,292) 99.7%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 390944263851 An ancient Egyptian scent bottle or alabastron, dating to the Late Period, 664 – 332 BC. A refined piece of Egyptian stone-working, composed of veined alabaster; the ovoid vessel with round base, short neck, disc rim and twin lug handles. This beautiful little scent bottle has a lovely minimalist aesthetic and its precise silhouette reflects the work of a skilled artist. With the small lug handles and short neck, it has a distinctly anthropomorphic feel. Originally containing the scents of cinnamon, frankincense, saffron and lavender so beloved by Egyptian men and women alike, now it stands empty, to be appreciated as an elegant piece of sculpture in its own right. Height: 3 ½ inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored. Provenance: Ex. British private collection, Dorset. Acquired prior to 1920.
