Honey is the thematic scheme of this unique vessel. The agate body suggests the cell-like shape and waxen material of the honeycomb; the diagonal pattern, its texture. The lid's surface features honeysuckle leaves, honeybees, and bumblebees. This small object was one of the jewels of the Tiffany & Company display at the Chicago Exposition of 1893.
