Item:283595792655Very rare authentic Egyptian alabaster jar from the New Kingdom Period. Dates between 1550 and 1070 B.C. The use of alabaster in the crafting of jars for royal funerals and other purposes dates back to the Old Kingdom (2686 - 2181 B.C.), but its popularity did not spread to the general population until much later. When this jar was made during the time of the New Kingdom, alabaster was still quite expensive, and would not have been affordable to the masses. This beautifully shaped jar shows excellent workmanship, and was probably owned by a member of the royal court. It was probably used to store ancient health and beauty aids--medicinal herbs and unguents, or cosmetics and perfumes. It measures about 4 inches tall and rests in a custom-made copper wire stand. This will be shipped by registered and insured mail at no additional charge.Material:Alabaster, Provenance:Ownership History Available, Type:Cosmetics jar, Colour:Gray
