Roman Cup with Thumb Rest Handle

Posted in 2. Ancient Glass, Roman Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on October 12, 2018

(62R) Cup with Thumb Rest Handle  Date: Third-Fourth Century H: 9 cm

 

Remarks: This light green bulbous cup has a single handle ending in a thumb rest at the rim.   A fine trail circles the neck and the rounded body has a flat base. It is the thumb rest that set it apart from just bulbous cup
