Detail from a Kamares ware 3-handled pithos (jar) with spout, from the Palace of Phaistos, 2000-1700 BC (Archaeological Museum, Herakleion, Crete)
Kamares ware is named after the cave sanctuary at Kamares on Mount Ida, Central Crete, where the first vases of this decorative type were found by shepherds in 1890.
Choose a 24” (60cm) silver tone chain, or an 18” (45cm) black leather cord or black organza-&-cotton cord. A pendant on a chain or organza-&-cotton cord comes in a sturdy black card gift box; a pendant on a leather cord comes in an organza bag, so as not to distort the leather by tight folding.
