Roman Empire, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. A translucent, pale green glass unguentarium with a broad, flattened conical body, a tall tubular neck, and a folded, everted rim, with areas of rainbow iridescence. The invention of glass blowing techniques occurred just as the Roman Empire was on the rise, making it possible for the glass industry to truly blossom among the ancient Romans. A wondrous form with gorgeous coloring, firey iridescence, and remarkable condition! Size: 3.75" W x 4.25" H (9.5 cm x 10.8 cm)
Provenance: Ex-collection M.W.H., Germany, acquired before 1960
