A beautiful piece of Roman glass displaying good levels of craftmanship and iridescence. The glass is a pale yellow/green colour and displays a full spectrum of colour in its iridescence, including patches of silver. The vessel features a long, cylindrical body featuring a ribbed pattern. The neck is exceedingly short leading to a wide, funnelled rim. The base is flattened to allow it to stand.

Excellent condition. Circa 3rd century.

Such vessels were used throughout the Roman Empire and would have been used to contain expensive perfumed oils for cosmetic purposes.
