Late Roman

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

This vase, part of a larger treasure, was excavated in 1849 in a French village only thirty-five miles from Limoges, a city that became synonymous with champlevé enamel work later in the Middle Ages. Now dispersed, the original find included numerous Roman coins, several other vessels, as well as gold and silver jewelry, some of which is housed in the Musée Dobrée in Nantes.
