Double Balsamarium in Rare Yellow Color. Roman, c. 4th century AD. Height: 4-1/4". In a less common brown-dark yellow glass, this bottle was fashioned from a larger folded and crimped tube. Here the narrow cylinder bodies flare out towards flattened base. Two looped handles have been attached at the sides. The balsamarium is finely preserved, but lacking the central bail handle. Occasional, fine iridescence is violet at the mouths and periwinkle blue at the base.
Estimated Value $400 - 550.
