Remark: This perfume holder characterizes a common type of glass made in Egypt during the Second and Third centuries A.D. The dark green color, wide neck, thick walls and base occur on all of the pieces from this group. These sturdy containers were probably used for shipping perfume. It is intact with brilliant iridescence.
