Unusual Trailed Glass Jar. Roman, c. 4th to 5th century AD. Cf. Hayes, ROM, 442; for indented walls, Matheson, Yale, no. 310. Eastern Mediterranean manufacture. Height: 3-3/8". An unusual variant of this class. In leaf green glass this jar features a wide and deep funnel mouth, with a broad, rolled and folded rim, and a smallish ovoid body. Lazy, long zigzags of glass connect the mouth and shoulders. Walls of the body are indented, making the bottle pentagonal in section. Intact and choice, with scattered patches of sometimes vivid iridescence. Something different!
Estimated Value $750 - 1,000.

Realized $2,070
