A small Egyptian offering cup made of unglazed faience. The cup is shaped like a chalice on a wide flaring foot and a shallow inner cavity.

These offering cups contained the various sacred perfumed oils that were used during both funeral and daily rites. They were often inscribed with hieroglyphs describing their contents and glazed. This little cup would have been a part of an offering tray where it would have been set on a base with similar vessels with various sacred unguents.

Provenance: Early 20th Century Collection, acquired legally and ethically on the art market.
