Rome, ca. 2nd to 4th century CE. Comprised of beautiful, free-blown aubergine glass, an elegant vessel presenting a broad-shouldered body with a concave bottom showing a nice broken pontil, a short neck and funnel mouth with an out-folded rib. Two soft green glass, sinuous trail handles join the shoulders with the rim of the jar. The surface presents stunning rainbow iridescence, most prominently boasting shades of purple, blue, orange, and green. What's more, aubergine is one of the rarest and most desirable of all Roman glass colors. A fabulous example! Size: 4.25" W x 4.625" H (10.8 cm x 11.7 cm)
