A beautiful Ancient Roman jar, blown from aubergine-coloured glass. It features a concave base which displays a pontil mark, leading to a globular body with a short, slightly inverted neck. The vessel is further enriched with horizontal concentric wheel-cut markings, spaced evenly in three bands across the body. Earthly encrustation is visible to the interior and exterior along with blue iridescence to the surface.
Date: Circa 1st Century AD
