Ca. 1st-2nd Century AD 

A large Roman yellow-green glass bottle with an elegant octagonal body with an arching, applied ribbon type handle that connects to the shoulder and upper neck of the piece. The base of the bottle features a diamond shaped element, and the vessel expands into tall, flat sides with a rounded shoulder and thin, concave neck. This expands into the large, rolled flat rim. The surface of the bottle bears some surface encrustation and a beautiful iridescent patina. 


Provenance: Collection of Rabbi Herbert Friedman, NYC. Collected in the 1960’s in Israel. Thence, to family by descent.
