A stone bowl with bored lug handles, made of red and white breccia (Aston Type 108). It dates from the First to Fifth Dynasties, though most of this type are usually produced between the First and Third Dynasties. It was part of the Rustafjaell collection purchased by Wellcome in 1906. Breccia bowls such as these would have been put in the graves of wealthy people.
