Roman Trefoil-Mouth Pitcher with Blue Handle

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on July 7, 2018

The thinly-blown glass of this small vessel demonstrates the skill of a First Century craftsman.  The spherical body rests on a pad foot and the graceful neck is accented by a trefoil-shaped mouth.  A trailed-on handle of opaque blue glass emphasizes the overall delicacy of this piece.
