Small Choice Roman Sidonian Molded Glass Amphoriskos

Lot 0155
**Originally Listed At $1200**

Roman Empire, Lebanon, Sidonian, ca. mid 1st to early 2nd century CE. A petite, free-blown semi-translucent glass vase, also known as an amphoriskos, the body a striking, deep ocher color. The vessel has a ovoid-shaped, ribbed body with a narrow tubular neck, a flared and in-folded rim, and a pair of elegantly undulating trailed handles joining neck to shoulder that beautifully complement the body. For collectors of Roman glass, some colors are more prized than others for their rarity - this ocher certainly is that! Beautifully preserved. Size: 1.7" W x 2.65" H (4.3 cm x 6.7 cm); 3.1" H (7.9 cm) on included custom stand.

Provenance: private East Coast, USA collection
