Superb Sidonian Amphoriskos in Violet. Roman Phoenica, 1st century AD. Cf. Sammlung Oppenlander, nos. 413, 414; no. 412, an oinochoe, perhaps from the same mold. Mold blown from a two-piece form, the bottle with thin, shallow funnel mouth, broad neck, and ovoid body on small cylindrical foot. At neck, twin drawn handles in aubergine or brown-blue. Molded design on body comprised of central band of curling floral arabesques, flanked by paired line border, with fluting above and below. Intact and perfect, this delicate artifact in superb condition. Height: 2-3/4". A choice example of this ardently collected class of early blown bottles. Bid well or you'll miss this opportunity!
Estimated Value $1,500-UP.

Realized $2,185
