ROMAN GLASS SPRINKLER FLASK

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on May 29, 2019

SPRINKLER FLASK (our first)

This pale olive green bottle has a funnel-shaped mouth and two handles of a darker green color. The faint diagonal pattern on the body was achieved by first blowing the glass into an optic mold. The bubble was then removed, twisted and further inflated. The small hole created by the neck constriction in this vessel permits only a drop or two of liquid to pass through at a time. This also prevents the costly contents from evaporating. The glass is still fairly clear and transparent as it was originally intended when created. Flask is intact. It was found in Israel.

D: 3rd to 4th Century AD

H: 7.5 cm Rim: 5.2 cm
