Lot 0013C
Roman, 1st to 3rd century CE. An absolutely amazing and stunning piece of Roman glass, a double unguent jar, connected by an incredibly thin, translucent piece of glass. A looped handle is attached to the sides of the tubes and rises around the top. The original twisted bronze applicator is still inside one of the sides of the jar. These types of jars were used to hold precious liquids, like perfumes or oils. This is a truly fine example of an item that would have been used by someone elite. Size: 3.25" W x 6.8" H (8.3 cm x 17.3 cm)
