Currently not on display

Bone panel, with an undecorated border, carved with vintage scenes. Two men with staves carry a basket of grapes from the vineyard, vines being shown far left and behind the basket. In a vaulted cellar, with a human mask as roof boss, a third man (to the right) rests two large wooden jugs on a barrel. A fourth man (far right) tastes the new wine. On the wall, a basket of fruit and a shelf with two horn or leather bottles; on the floor a large pitcher with a handle. The vintage is an early Christian symbol of salvation.
