A jar with blue faience or glass rods lengthways down the vessel known as a Hyksos jar. Traces of fabric are evident in the neck. See also EC502 and W1293. This is probably from the Frankland Hood Collection, lot 57, where similar 'mock-ups' are described. The item was sold at auction on 11.11.1924. Netted vessels have been found. Petrie in Seventy Years in Archaeology page 211 describes a burial at Qurneh which he discovered on 30th December in 1908. It contained a rishi coffin and ‘furniture and vases in network slings, most of which were very fragile. I coated them with collodion, and so succeeded in bringing them away safely’. The burial group went to Edinburgh in 1909 and has been dated to the mid sixteenth century BCE, however, the bead net pouches from the royal burial have a criss-cross pattern and the beads are a different shape (http://nms.scran.ac.uk/database/record.php?usi=000-180-000-284-C&scache=1o7vb26ty1&searchdb=scran). The beading on this vessel has not been dated, so it is unclear as to whether or not it is original.
