HIGHLY INPORTANT EGYPTIAN STONE VESSEL IN FINE LIGHT GREEN HIGHLY POLISHED STONE, LIKELY DATING TO THE EARLY PHARAONIC, OLD DYNASTY (2686–2181 BC). The vessel likely for incense or perfume with slim shoulders, decorated with small stylized animal heads(?), the body flat and tapering towards the pointy bottom. The polishing and stone quality is superb - a gem of an item in hand.
Size: c. 55 mm. long Ex. Danish Private collection.
