Holy land, showing Egyptian influence. 3” height with turnip form body on small foot, slightly waisted neck and broad indented medial lip. Dark gray terracotta. The form and material of this jar are very similar to those identified with Tell el Yahudiyeh (Mound of the Jews) though the decoration associated with that site are absent. It is known that Egypt traded with Palestine and this site in the Nile Delta is advantageously positioned for that trade. It seems possible that these scent containers found in the Holy Land originated in Egypt. Ex Paxton Park, Cambridgeshire, England, the property of Lord Esme Gordon (died 1900) and probably acquired by descent from a pilgrim forbear.
