Faience Vase


Twenty-five faience vases, all except one blue in color, were found in a badly damaged box. This vessel was one of them. It belongs to a type called nemset, which is often shown in ritual scenes placed on a stand or an altar. The spouts vary in shape; this one may be a copy of an original in copper. When used for pouring out libations, the lid was removed.
