Ancient glass vessel. Fertile area of Nile #3

£ 350.00

This work is inspired by Ancient Egyptian glass vessels on display in the Gordiola Glassworks Museum ,  Algaida, Mallorca. The actual vessels are between 8 - 15cms high and the swirling zig zag patterns and colours, despite their incredible age, are beautiful. They were probably used for precious oils and perfumes. A member of the Gordiola family, Daniel Adelquer Gordiola,  travelled to Egypt  during 1947 & 48 and brought these items back to start a museum of glass  This artwork is now available in the Ashmolean Museum shop or call 01865 278000 and ask for the shop
