Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263828051448 LOT 12Seller's Estimate: USD 600 - 900 Ancient Egypt, Middle Kingdom Period, late 11th to 14th Dynasty, ca. 2061 to 1690 BCE. One of the classic forms of antiquity, a squat, rounded vessel with a flat base, a wide discoid rim, and a small mouth. It is carved from alabaster that is not quite opaque. Hold this example to the light, and you can see the beautiful tan and cream coloration within the stone. A central hole has been drilled into the top of the vessel. This type of vessel was used to hold cosmetics; the Egyptians are famous for the cosmetics worn by both men and women, like black kohl painted around the eyes. Size: 2" W x 2" H (5.1 cm x 5.1 cm). Alabaster, which is a form of gypsum or calcite, was quarried along the length of the Nile, from Giza to just south of Luxor, and the Egyptians made its carved forms famous throughout the ancient world. A thousand years later, the Greeks made vessels like this out of pottery and painted them white in imitation of the beautiful stone. On this example, as you examine the interior, you can see the grooves left behind from carving and smoothing it into its current form.
