Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Glass became very popular in the New Kingdom and although glass-making was not discovered by the Egyptians, they soon learned how to make glass. Glass inlays and vessels, such as this one, were precious and a luxury article. This piece has a blue body, two small loop handles, and a round bottom. The banded decoration is yellow and white.
