This blue pot is an excellent example of Egyptian faience ware, and why it was so highly regarded in the ancient Mediterraneann. Ancient Egyptian artisans had been producing high-quality faience for millennia by the time this bowl was produced and it continued to be a highly regarded material for use in both Egyptian and Hellenistic art during the Ptolemaic period when this bowl was produced (c. 332-30 BCE).
