notes

Many examples of this distinctive form are recorded, some retaining their original cover. Their country of manufacture is most likely Syria or Egypt, though their function remains a mystery, possibly as containers for spices, sweetmeats or medicinal substances. For a full discussion of their  function, see Auld 2004, pp.141-197.
