Inlay of a Falcon


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The inlay represents a falcon depicted without many details. Glass was used in Egypt not before the Thutmosidic Period. This piece is somewhat crude and may either belong to one of the first test examples or was created by an inexperienced glass maker.
