Senet is a board game that dates back to Ancient Egypt. The Royal Game of Ur, on the other hand, is a board game from the Sumerian civilization (4000 to 2000 BC). In both games, you must be the first to get your pawns to the end point.
This candle holder is a reference to the bossed beaker. These are glass beakers that occur in late 16th-century or 17th-century archaeological contexts. The wall of the bossed beaker is decorated with a relief pattern in the form of drops, tears, diamonds, warts or … bosses. Just like with this candle holder.
