Late Roman Bottle with Neck Ruffle

Posted in 2. Ancient Glass, Islamic Glass, Roman Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on February 19, 2017

This bottle is olive green; the globular body has a flattened and indented base.  The tall neck has a slight constriction where it joins the body and is decorated with a ruffled collar.    The form may be from the crossover time between Roman and Islamic periods.
