Ancient Bronze Cosmetic Kohl Vial w' Applicator 600 BC
Ancient Bronze Cosmetic Vial with bronze applicator, 600-400, BC from Jerusalem. Very nice natural green patina. Eye-paint (kohl) was an important cosmetic for the ancient inhabitants of the Holy Land. The application of Kohl was commonly depicted in ancient drawings and wall reliefs. It was usually stored in tube-shaped containers, which allowed the applicator (kohl stick) to be easily inserted. This kohl tube has been designed to resemble a palm column with a flared top. Tube 85mm Applicator 145mm
