The Cavour Vase

Find this object in the Egypt & Syria 12th-13th century Gallery on Floor 3

We know that this vase was made in Egypt or Syria, but that it later travelled to Europe. It is believed to be named after the nobleman from Italy who may have later owned it, Count Camillo Benso di Cavour. What things do you have at home that are from far away countries?

GL.6.1998 Glass, Enamelled, Gilded, probably Syria, 13th century CE
