Ancient glass vessel, Asuan, Egypt

£ 200.00

This piece is designed to hang on a wall.

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
