Roman Wheel-Cut Flask

Posted in 2. Ancient Glass, Roman Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on November 13, 2015

A large flask in a bluish-green color has a globular body with a flattened base.  The straight cylindrical neck ends with a small inward-folded collar rim. The body is decorated with five wheel-cut bands of alternating widths.  A thin layer of iridescence is scattered over the piece. A tiny strain crack appears inside the neck, otherwise it is intact.  The bottle may be from Asia Minor modern Turkey.
