Egyptian Carved Brass Vase With Sphinx and Calligraphy
A fairly large hand detailed vase from Egypt. This particular vase was made in the 19th to early 20th century for trade to wealthy travelers who went "on tour" for extended periods of time, and liked to bring back "historical artifacts". It features images of the sphinx, a man, and writing in Arabic calligraphy. It measures 12" tall by 7.5" across, and weighs about 2 pounds.
