MEROVINGIAN TRAILED BEAKER

This is a Frankish (Merovingian) glass beaker with fine trailing. The piece is made from bubbly glass with a slight green tinge and has a bell-shaped body on a small circular pad base. At the top there is a splayed lip and below it there is a neck band of fine trailing. Intact. Ex Martin Wunsch collection, NYC.

There is a similar glass beaker  in our collection 54E Frankish or Merovingian Beaker .
