Robert asks about

This small "vase", almost 5 inches tall, was a gift from my brother, who purchased it in Northern Italy.

He was told it is Etruscan and seems to be bronze.

Wonder if it is a bronze alabastron.

But one would normally expect to see small handles at the sides.

Improbable that the handles were above the break


Here are two Persian bronze alabastra.


From Moll


Perhaps a Egyptian/ Persian bronze situla with the handles handles on top

and not at the sides. Although if it is not the typical small situla shape.

Thanks. Yes, possiby was something like this .
