Roman Glass Ovoid Vase, Trailed Handles

Lot 0024I Details

Description
Ancient Rome, ca. 2nd to 4th century CE. Oh what an elegant form! Oh what a breathtaking color scheme! This light green glass vase with its ovoid body, graceful tapering conical neck, characteristic splayed lip and dimpled base stands upon a deep blue, thickly trailed ring. Two sinuous glass trails of that same bold blue hue contrast beautifully with its translucent, pale green body. Further enhancing the beauty of this piece are the generous areas of silvery and rainbow iridescence that have developed over the ages. Thanks to the Roman invention of the blowpipe and the keen eye of ancient artisans, glass wonders such as this example came to be! Size: 4" W x 8.125" H (10.2 cm x 20.6 cm)

Provenance: Ex-private American collection, acquired in 1975.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
