Late Roman Bottle with Neck Ruffle

Posted in 2. Ancient Glass, Islamic Glass, Roman Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on November 6, 2015

This bottle is olive green; the globular body has a flattened and indented base.  The tall neck has a slight constriction where it joins the body and is decorated with a ruffled collar.    The form may be from the crossover time between Roman and Islamic periods.

    Hello. Regarding the late roman bottle with ruffled neck: do we know the area of production? I’m interested in finding examples of southern Spanish glassware dated to around 5/6th centuries. Many thanks.
