The Cesnola Collection, Purchased by subscription, 1874–76
On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 176
Two-handled vase with spout and cover, the knob in form of a miniature vase.
The shape and decoration of this unusual vessel combine to give it a rather exotic appearance, which may be taken to reflect the eclecticism of Cypriot art.
