Lot 0046C
Bactria, modern-day Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan, ca. 3rd millennium BCE. Quite stunning rock crystal goblet that would have been owned by a very wealthy family almost 5000 years ago. Carved from a single quartz crystal, with slightly rounded base, rounded walls and "rolled" flat rim. From experience I can tell you it holds just over one shot of tequila. Size: 2.5" W x 2.25" H (6.4 cm x 5.7 cm).

Provenance: private East Coast, USA collection; ex-Martin Wunsch collection, New York, USA, acquired in the 1980s
