Marble bowl


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Technical analysis: Ultraviolet-induced visible light luminescence examination

This small, deep, white marble bowl is intact and in excellent condition with only minor losses at the rim. A shallow groove around the interior of the rim delineates it from the body of the vessel. (1)

There are small areas of encrustation near the rim. Light scratches and some very small superficial pits are noticeable on the surface.
