PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
Characterful porcelain bowl inspired by an ancient Egyptian faience hippopotamus statuette (c. 1961-1878 B.C) now in the Museum's collection and their unofficial mascot, nicknamed William. The original would guarded the tomb chapel of the steward Senbi II at Meir. Reflecting the iconic hippo statuette's blue glaze, this trinket dish features a design of stylised lotus flowers, with which the body was painted. A playful piece for your desk or dresser, this ceramic "William" dish is the ideal place to store keepsakes, handy essentials, loose change, keys or sundries. Bring some fascination to the table with this unique conversation piece, reimagining a visitor favourite at The Met.
