Roman Glass Unguentarium, Yellow Marbled

Lot 0021A Details

Description
Rome, ca. 1st century CE. An ancient yellow and white marbled glass unguent. Size: 3.3" H (8.4 cm)

Ancient glass manufacture had begun in the 2nd millennium BC in Mesopotamia and Egypt. The Greeks and Phoenicians advanced glass technology greatly in the latter 1st millennium BC. In the early 1st century AD, Roman workshops began producing blown glass on a large scale. Eventually glass vessels came to replace a wide variety of pottery and metal wares in the ancient world. Ancient Roman glass was traded far beyond the Roman Empire. Roman glass vessels have been found in Scandinavia, India, and in Han Dynasty tombs in China.

Confer a glass perfume bottle: Metropolitan Museum of Art, inv. no. 81.10.274.

Provenance: Formerly in a London private collection, 1997.

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.
