Description

Small kohl container composed of two round containers with pointed ends, attached at their long edge. Each container has a flat flower-shaped stopper with a small hole at centre. The opposite end tapers to a capped point. Between the two tubes is a small flattened loop with a chain attached; on the other end of the chain is a dabber, capped similarily to the containers, with a square shaft etched with zigzags that transition to a smooth cylindrical end. The container is decorated with dots and thin strips of twisted metal.
