Square-bodied Jug in Green. Roman, c. 2nd century AD. Cf. Wolkenburg Collection, Christies' London, 7/9/91, lot 71a. Height: 4-3/4". Blown jug in light green glass, this jug features a short cylinder neck and thick flattened rim. The rectangular body is likely mold-blown to an even, square profile -- although the corners are rounded and the straight walls are a bit concave. A ridged, trailed handle is attched at one side. One lower corner has been restored to match the bottle's crusty, earthen patina. Walls, neck and handle show areas of sometimes vivid green, violet, red, lime, and indigo iridescence. Square-sided bottles remain a less common form in ancient glass.
Estimated Value $450 - 650.
