Ancient Near East, probably Iraq, Islamic, ca. 9th century CE. A semi-translucent glass vessel, in hues of gold, slate grey, and cream, with an indented and stable base, piriform body, narrow neck, and flared rim. The body itself has twenty-four evenly-sized and evenly-spaced cut facets which give the vessel a unique effervescent appearance. Vessels like this would have been used to hold precious oils or perfumes, and would have been a familiar sight amongst middle-and-lower-class households in ancient Islamic society. Size: 1.75" W x 3.25" H (4.4 cm x 8.3 cm).
