This was not merely a decorative item - flacons like this were actually used in the royal court on an everyday basis. The long neck suggests that this was a wine flacon.

The total height of the flacon is 46 cm. Two of the largest emeralds on the flacon are approximately 45 cts. each, and the largest spinel is 35 cts.
