Three pottery replicas in a box: A Pear-shaped Bottle, a Juglet, an Oil Lamp.
The originals were found in Jerusalem and date back 2,000 years, to the First Century CE. The bottles were used for perfume. Perfumes were very precious in ancient times, and were used for therapy, ritual and cosmetic purposes. The bottles were always small, with a narrow neck and a broad rim.
Oil lamps were commonly used in ancient times. Most were relatively simple, others, heavily decorated. This oil lamp is a replica of a typical First Century oil lamp from Jerusalem.
Size with box: 3″ x 8″ x 4.5″.
