Object Description

A rare Roman childs feeder flask in pale bluey-green glass. The vessel is of simple cup form, pulled out on one side to form a small tapering spout with orifice. The flask stands on a flattened base, slightly everted in the centre. The vast passage of time has formed an attractive thick iridescent yellow crust over the outside which covers the whole surface.

Circa 3rd century AD.

Object Condition

Spout broken at the very tip; otherwise complete and intact.
