Lot 4843

Neatly Crafted "Sauce" Plate. Roman, 1st to 2nd century AD. Cf. Sotheby's Constable-Maxwell Collection, lot no. 64. Width: 8-3/4". Blown in a colorful yellow-green glass, this footed plate has a rolled rim that has been folded down and inwards to form a reinforcing rim/angled wall around the plate. The very shallow funnel form with folded foot creates a cup-like center and has a raised central umbo. Intact and perfect. With transparent and subtle, to more vivid iridescence in greens, violets, reds, limes, and magenta. Although light, the dish has been innovatively and ruggedly made. Again this dish is formed to drain sauces or juices to the central reservoir, much like lot no. #4737. Choice and crack free.
Estimated Value $750 - 1,000.
