This is a precious little thing. I bought it a few years ago, have it standing on a shelf in my bedroom
and though it is surrounded by a number of other interesting finds,
my eyes always linger a little longer on this.
The cup is about 3 inches high, is made of either paper or leather,( what's more likely ?), and is hand-painted with a beautiful group of figures within a black line interior.
What exactly is it do you think?, some type of mortar and pestle, but for what?, and how old would you guess it is?
Thanks for giving it a look,
