Single-Handled Roman Glass Pitcher

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on May 15, 2018

31R Single Handled Pitcher

Remark:The natural colored blue-green glass used on this delicate pitcher has virtually no weathered and appears as it would have looked just after being manufactured in the First Century.  The simple ovoid body is accented by a ring base.  The precise handle is beautifully executed with thin ribs and double fold-over at the mouth.

Hight: 13 cm

Date:First Century
