A lovely and unusual glass pendant created in the shape of a jug. Made of vibrant cobalt blue glass, this miniature juglet displays traces of bright iridescence on its small body, testament to the object’s ancient origins and prolonged burial in the soil. The piece displays a slender body, which raises, tapering at the neck and flaring slightly at the rim. A small decorative handle is applied to the body and drawn up to the rim, the foot is missing. Some air bubbles are visible on the pendant’s body. Pendants like this were added to various jewellery pieces, and this example could be suspended through the handle.
Date: Circa 2nd – 4th century AD.
