Pear-Shaped Roman Dropper Flask
The Roman flask is similar to the more common examples decorated with flat undulating threads called, “snake trails”. Below the neck is a tight constriction creating a small opening to control the pouring and evaporation of the costly liquid within. A milky white iridescence weathering has formed over the yellowish colorless glass of this vessel.
