Roman Trefoil-Mouth Pitcher with Blue Handle

Posted in 2. Ancient Glass, Roman Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on April 1, 2016

The thinly-blown glass of this small vessel demonstrates the skill of a First Century craftsman.  The spherical body rests on a pad foot and the graceful neck is accented by a trefoil-shaped mouth.  A trailed-on handle of opaque blue glass emphasizes the overall delicacy of this piece.

    Hi Carole & John, this is a very nice and graceful pitcher, especially the shape and combination of the colors.
