Ca. AD 100-200

An astonishing large blown glass flask, colourless with wheel cut banding of alternating widths over the entire body and neck. This high-quality vessel is set on a slightly pushed-in bottom, which expands into a globular body and long tubular neck that has been slightly tooled in at the base. The rim has been folded up and over, creating a flared shape with a circular depression inside the interior. A thin layer of iridescence is scattered over the piece. For a similar example, see The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Accession Number: 81.10.67.

 

Provenance: Private London collection; acquired in the 1990s on the UK art market.

Exhibited: Olympia Art & Antiques fair, London June 2022.
