Ca. 1st-3rd Century AD

 

A Roman glass jar, colourless with a vibrant, dark yellow tinge. It has a splayed rim, with a rounded lip and a hollow, overhanging fold below. The neck of the jar is short and concave, from which protrudes a bulbous body that tapers into a shallow, concave bottom. Intricate spiral ribs of varying lengths and shapes run from left to right around the body, likely created by a mould. This provides an added complexity to the work.

 

Provenance: London private collection, acquired in the 1990s on the German art market.
