A Choice Date Flask. Roman, likely Syria, 1st century AD. Cf. Matheson, Yale, no. 142; Sammlung Oppenlander, no. 477. Height: 2-5/8". Mold blown in fairly thick, this lightly marbled brown glass has an admixture of white creating zones of yellows, and thus a more realistic appearance. The bottle has a flared mouth with an inward folded lip. The textured details on the body are very clear. With a negligible, tiny chip at the exterior of the mouth, otherwise bottle choice and very pristine. A truly special bottle! This series is always desired and sought after by collectors of early blown glass.
Estimated Value $950-UP.

Realized $1,840
