New Year’s flask. Light blue glaze; incised borders on neck with baboons flanking the neck. Inscribed with New Year’s wishes on vertical band around the body. Given as New Years presents. Badly broken. Complete vessel mended from many fragments. Would be a good candidate for Objects conservation to restore as we have few complete examples.
