Rome, ca. 3rd to 4th century CE. In a compound word, jaw-dropping! A free-blown glass bottle of light blue-green hues with a globular body on a concave bottom and a tall slender tubular neck which would have allowed only small amounts of precious scented liquid to be dispensed at a time. The neck is elegantly adorned with a ribbon-like trail around its lower end. Stunning traces of rainbow iridescence throughout, quite a beauty! Size: 3.375" in diameter x 7.125" H (8.6 cm x 18.1 cm)
