A tall glass “candlestick” unguentarium of light blue colour, displaying some iridescence. From the conical body a long neck tapers into a flat, slightly asymmetrical rim. The base is slightly concave underneath. Unguentaria were extremely popular throughout the Roman Empire, since they contained perfume and oil, considered precious at the time and often used both in private life and public ceremonies. This type of unguentarium is among the most popular glass shapes of the Roman Empire.
Period: 2nd – 3rd cent. AD
