Parian ~ Eliezer and Rebecca

Circa 1860

This beautifully detailed parian example depicts a story from the book of Genesis, chapter 24, in which Abraham’s servant Eliezer was sent to find a wife for his son Isaac. Eliezer went to the homeland of Abraham and waited by a well. When the young women came to draw water, he asked for a drink. There he found Rebecca who provided water for him and his camels.
