Object Description

A lovely and unusual glass pendant created in the shape of a jug. Originally crafted in vivid yellow glass with fretwork pattern and handle of trailed glass, the jug now displays striking patches of brilliant iridescence due to weathering and age, testament to the object’s ancient origins and prolonged burial in the soil. Pendants like this were added to various jewellery pieces, and this example could be suspended through the handle.

Date: Circa 2nd – 4th century AD.

Object Condition

Very fine. Beautiful silvery iridescence covers the item.
