Cosmetic Vessel


On display


Flat based cylinder cosmetic jar with concave sides and projecting rim. Separate lid. Heavily banded dark yellow and white Egyptian alabaster (travertine). Traces of contents inside. From the tomb of a lady called Seneb. The excavator has marked the base in pencil 'XII' and there seems to be other letters beneath this but they are too difficult to read.
