Price: $700.00
Islamic Miniature Glass Vessel Amulet - GF.0292, Origin: The Holy Land, Circa: 700 AD to 900 AD, Collection: Islamic Art, Style: Islamic, Medium: Glass, In exquisite miniature, this pitcher imitates larger glass vessels in everyday use. Created from a few drops of molten glass, it may well have contained the rarest bit of essence or perfume when the classical world was at her peak. As we contemplate this charming object, we cannot help but wonder what function it served so long ago. Did it hang around the neck of some legendary beauty, filling her senses with sweet perfume? Did it protect against some common ailment or keep the wearer free from the excesses of drinking? Its past remains as much a mystery as its size. Yet, as we hold this small token of antiquity in our hands, we share our pleasure with those who lived in a distant age.
