Contact Dealer To Purchase

Object Description

A very fine Ancient Roman jug blown from translucent yellow glass. The vessel features a tubular rim, which is folded over and tooled into a trefoil shape. The short, narrow neck flows elegantly into a bulbous body with a slightly concave base. A trailing decoration in the same hue of yellow is applied to the neck, further enriching the piece. A brown ribbon handle is drawn up and outwards from the shoulder, then folded onto the rim to connect the body and mouth for ease of use.

Date: Circa early 3rd Century AD.

Object Condition
