Measurements: 9.1 cm - height


Description: A pale green glass jug featuring a globular bottle and a long neck. Indentations decorate the body and applied double handle made from one piece of blue glass trails from the rim and folds inwards. Threaded horizontal decoration appears on the top and bottom of the neck. This piece was decorated with the technique of trailed threading where molten glass threads in contrasting colours were wound onto the body of the hot blown glass vessel in a spiral. Other than conventional threaded decoration this piece features interesting indentations that are rarely paralleled. Such indentations were made with the tips of the pincers while the vessel was still hot.


Period: 2nd century AD


Condition: Very fine. Majority of glass covered in a mustard coloured crust with silver iridescence throughout
