Lot 4847

Fine Wide-bodied Jug. Roman, c. 3rd century AD. Cf. Sotheby's Constable-Maxwell Collection, lot no. 214. Height: 5-1/8". Robust and blown in light green glass, this distinctive bottle form features a wide plate-like mouth, a lightly flared cylinder neck, and a wide hemispherical body with indented base. The broad, neatly trailed handle has been attached at one side and folded into v-shape. The handle is perhaps in a slightly different green than jug. Intact and perfect, with thick, opaque silvery-violet iridescence along base. A choice and showy bottle.
Estimated Value $750 - 1,150.
