Hideaway Vase
Sb 2723
Richelieu room 8 showcase 2
This ‘hideaway’ vase contained all
of the objects in the showcase.
Some documents, including deeds of sale,
could be stored in terracotta jars.
“Taking these deeds, this deed of purchase,
even the sealed one, and the other deed left open, you must also put them into an earthenware vessel, in order that they may last for many days.”,
we read in Jeremiah 32:14.
The Apostle Paul says that his minister is like “treasure in earthen jars”. - 2 Corinthians 4:7, Bible in Living English
