31R Single Handle Pitcher of Allaire Collection

31R Single Handle Pitcher 1st C


Remark: The natural color of blue-green glass used on this delicate pitcher has virtually no weathering 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 looped handle is beautifully executed with thin ribs and double fold-over at the mouth.

Height: 13 cm

Date: First Century
