Object Description

An exquisite Ancient Roman jug blown from translucent yellow glass. The vessel stands on a splayed foot from which its delicate body rises into a bulbous shape and tapers into a slender cylindrical neck. Parts of a trailing decoration in the same hue of yellow remain on the neck and below the flared mouth. The thin rim has been folded into a decorative trefoil shape which would have allowed for easy pouring. A single ribbon handle is drawn up from the shoulder, then folded below the mouth and pressed onto the rim for ease of use.

Date: Circa early 3rd Century AD
