Here you find an Ancient Egypt stone alabastron in a teardrop shape, two delicate lug handles still present. However the rim is partially damaged. Dates from the Early Dynastic period and in good condition with mineral deposits both on the inside and outside. Nice colour showing, however not as brilliant as the other examples from this collection. Measures 5.2cm in height.
