This chalice is well over 200 years old and could be as old as 400 years old that's made from real un-dyed Egyptian alabaster that's hard to find because all the larger premium grade blocks like this was are gone.The mines have been have been totally stripped and there's now nothing left of real Egyptian alabaster that's naturally a butterscoth amber color that you see people try and dye to get this color.The chalice is 10" tall with a gold retainer on top and 3 lions paws on the base.I'm selling it for a lot less than you could find one made out of Italian alabaster that's what most objects are made from now.It's easily a $450 vase for only $150.727-479-6513
