- Curator's comments
Electrotype of a tall fluted gold vessel from Ur (PG.800). The original, U.10453, is in Philadelphia. The identity of the decoration on the underside to that on ACa.58 implies both were made in the same workshop, if not by the same hand.
A.Ca numbers 54-58 and 60 [59 may not have been allocated] were added to the series by J E Reade, presumably in the 1990s in preparation for G56/MES1 gallery.
