Description: An ancient Roman glass pear-shaped bottle, with a cylindrical neck expanding downwards to join imperceptibly with ovoid body. The vessel has an everted, flaring rim and flattened bottom and dark brown layer of encrustation on the outside and inside surface of the vessel. The natural bluish green colour of the glass of this vessel was modified in order to achieve the colourlessness and transparency. This was done by adding manganese or antimony to the primary glass mix.

Period: early to mid 1st cent. AD

 

Condition: Very fine, intact. Dark brown layer of encrustation on the inner and outer surface of the vessel.
