Bactrian Grey Chlorite Bowl

A plain, finely turned, stone Bactrian drinking vessel/cup or big enough to be a food bowl, a flat bottomed, truncated cone.
Fine as China and elegant in it’s simplicity.
Opaque Grey Chlorite (like Slate), with a polished surface, covered in fine scratches, from the manufacturing process. In near excellent condition, with only a few, very tiny, recent (?) chips on rim, (1 mm x 1 mm.) Only a fraction lighter, than their surrounds, they’re almost invisible.
It seems almost quibbling to mention them, and three small, earthy accretions under base, which sits stably.

Age: Circa 2nd Millenium B.C.

Size: W 120 mm x H 55 mm

Weight: 237 grams
