Cosmetic palette (n. cat. 74511)

Cosmetic palette

Cosmetic palette with a very elaborate shape: it has an elaborated decoration on its long side and there are three holes for hanging on the opposite side. A certain dating is made difficult by the lack of exact comparisons and information about its discovery.
