Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 3rd to 4th century CE. A tall and beautiful free-blown oinochoe formed from translucent, pale yellow-green glass with a slight concave base and rough pontil scar, a piriform body with a rounded shoulder, a tubular neck, a wide trefoil spout, and an applied trail handle joining rim to body. Thick bands of trailing are applied around the neck as well as just beneath the spout rim, giving it a personalized presentation. Faint areas of silvery iridescence adorn most exterior surfaces, though brilliant silver and rainbow iridescence accentuates the interior of the rim. Custom lucite display stand included. Size: 2.5" W x 6.25" H (6.4 cm x 15.9 cm); 6.4" H (16.3 cm) on included custom stand.
