The word 'amphora' is Latin, derived from Greek. It means 'to carry on both sides' and refers to the handles on either side of the vessel. In the ancient Mediterranean, and in the Roman Empire, the word Amphora came to refer to a unit of measurement. Amphora were used to carry everything.
This Amphora is glass, it is tiny (about 1 inch from top to bottom), and it is loaded with tiny screws, cogs and gears. It is on a 20 inch antiqued brass chain or a 20 inch silver plated chain.
