Mold-Blown Perfume Bottle

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

This perfume dropper flask was blown into a two part mold with a distinct lattice pattern.  The globular body has a flattened base, short neck with a restriction where it meets the body and sharply flaring mouth. Just below the rim is a narrow folded flange. The brilliant iridescence of this piece greatly enhances its beauty.

H: 10 cm
