Object Description

An exceptional Ancient Roman jar blown from pale blue glass. The vessel stands on a short foot, which curves into a concave base. Its conical body rises from the flared foot and folds inwards before tapering into a short neck. Sixteen dark blue handles have been applied to the shoulder, drawn up and pressed onto the accentuated flat rim. Trailing in the same dark blue runs around the neck further enriching the vessel.

Date: Circa 3rd – 4th Century AD

Object Condition

Very good condition. A small crack to the shoulder. Iridescence and weathering to the surface.
