A Group of Late Antique Bottles. Roman Near East, c. 4th to 6th century AD. An cross section of Late Roman vial shapes, probably originating in Syria. All with slight to broad funnel mouths, short to long cylindrical necks, and body shapes ranging from piriform to ovoid, to barrel, or to conical. Two with pinched or mold blown ribbing along the walls. All are in pale to light green glass, from lightweight to fairly thick. Each intact and choicely preserved, with some patinated almost to the look of custard glass, while one or two with a faint hint of iridescence. Heights: 1-7/8" - 2-3/4". Interesting material. The pontil technique, and consistant glass color, almost suggesting these all might be products of one workshop. Lot of 5 pieces.
Estimated Value $350 - 500.

Realized $334
