Islamic Glass Vessel - GF.0138, Origin: Israel, Circa: 600 AD to 900 AD, Dimensions: 4" (10.2cm) high x 2.25" , 5.7cm) wide, Collection: Near Eastern, Style: Islamic, Medium: Glass, This most unusual vessel is shaped like a spindle laden with wool. In the art of the classical world, we see Roman and Greek matrons bending over their spinning: in antiquity, the spindle was part of every well-bred woman's household equipment. Surely then, this charming object belonged among the treasures of a woman who lived long ago. This may be the only surviving clue to her existence, yet somehow in its presence we feel we know her very well.
