Roman or Merovingian Glass Bell Beaker

 This rather large pale yellow-green concaved beaker with a thin glass trail around its center has the elements of both a 1st C. Roman jar and a 5th C. Merovingian bell beaker.  There are parallels on both sides of the question but no exact one like this example. Whatever the century it is a beautiful glass beaker.

 H: 7.5 cm
