Object Description

This is a rare pale yellow flask of quite a large piece. It has longitudinal ribs on its body and displays a consistent iridescence throughout the surface. Its body is round and its neck is conical, widening in a round mouth with a tapering rim. Metal oxides were added to the glass to vary its colour and create objects such as this one. Antimony and lead were used to make yellow coloured glass.

Object Condition

Excellent, the piece is intact and the surface displays some iridescence and some encrustations.
