23R Zig Zag Roman Glass Pitcher

  Date: 4th century  Size: 9 cm

Remarks:It was during the period in 4th Century that turquoise decoration gained popularity.  The example shown here is an excellent representation of how it was most commonly implemented.  This zig-zag design was further accented by making the handle and applied collar ring from the same turquoise glass. The pitcher was made of light green glass which has weathered over the ages to this almost gold patina.

H: 9 cm

Fourth Century

Ref: Hans Cohn #50, Boston #58
