75R late Roman glass beaker of Allaire Collection

Date: 4-5th century  Size: H: 7.5 cm Rim D: 8.5 cm


Description: This rather large pale yellow-green concave beaker has a thin glass trail around its body with an out-splayed folded rim.  The rounded curved base does not have the classic Roman ring foot but a round protrusion which makes it very stable.  The pontil mark in the center of the base is cracked off and rough.  The beaker has the elements of both a 1st C. Roman jar and a 5th C. Merovingian bell beaker.  It is probably not Merovingian,  however it is leading the way to the bell beaker.  Parallels have been found of similar vessels from both periods however we feel it is late Roman because of the flat base rather than the rounded bases, points or small knops of most Merovingian bell beakers.


Remarks and Condition: This beautiful beaker is intact with almost no weathering. It has a real presence.

 The Codd bottle with patented closure

88A Glass Codd Bottle From the Allaire Collection


This bottle has a cylindrical shape with a flat base and a Codd stopper inside. It is embossed with the words: Demerara Ice House, Proprietors D’Aguiar Bros and a trade mark of a hand with a heart on it. Demerara Ice House Hotel, is located in Georgetown, Guyana, and was purchased by the D’Aguiar Brothers around 1907. It is called a Codd Bottle because of this type of closure in the neck. Hiram Codd, an English engineer in 1872, patented a bottle filled under gas pressure which pushed a marble against a rubber washer in the neck, creating a perfect seal. It was mainly used for mineral effervescent water.  Mr. Codd also devised a bottle opener (not showed) to be inserted into the bottle’s neck to push the marble down to ‘open’ the drink and let the trapped gas escape. Although Codd’s opener was widely used in public settings, privately most people simply used their little finger to push the marble down.

THIS IS AN UPDATED POST WITH THEIR EUROPEAN GLASS INCLUDED Getty Museum, both locations The Getty Villa and The Getty Center

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on October 16, 2019

J. Paul Getty Museum, Both Locations

The J. Paul Getty Museum has two beautiful locations with magnificent views, grounds and architecture structures, the Getty Villa in Malibu and the Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Click on the pictures below to enlarge and view.  Uses your browser’s back arrow to return to this page.  Write-up continues below pictures.

Getty Center in Los Angeles

The Getty Center in Los Angeles houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and European and American photographs. The European glass at Getty Center covers a range in date from the late Middle Ages to the late seventeenth century.  To see pictures of the Getty Center glass collection click on this link. **European Glass at Getty

Getty Villa in Malibu

The Getty Roman Villa in Malibu is part of The J. Paul Getty Museum.  The Villa is modeled after a first-century Roman country house, the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum, Italy.  The Villa dei Papiri was buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, and much of it remains unexcavated. The Getty Villa houses approximately 44,000 works of art from the Museum’s extensive collection of Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities, of which over 1,200 are on view. To see pictures of the Getty Villa glass collection click on this link**Roman Glass at Getty Villa in Malibu

Oppenlander Ancient Glass Collection

In 2003 the Getty acquired more than 350 works of ancient glass from the private collection of Erwin Oppenlander. This collection is remarkable for its cultural and chronological breadth.  The Oppenlander collection is a large part of their wonderful Roman glass collection in a new exhibition space at the Getty Villa.

Roman Glass Aryballos of Elisabeth & Theo Zandbergen

Origin: Western Empire, probably Rhineland, ~ 2nd century CE.

Dimensions: Height ~ 5 cm.; ø body ~ 8,2 cm.; ø spout 3,7 cm.; weight 91,4 gram.

Remarks: Aryballoi, the plural for aryballos, were frequently used in roman times. The romans were quite keen on their let’s say habits around the visits to the thermal baths. The aryballoi were part of that. These had all kinds of different shapes and sizes. One really could show-off with the aryballos used. However, “one should not take bath-oils to the bath in a glass bottle, because it can break and cause injury” as Derekh Erezt Rabbah (~ 160 – 220 CE) stated. (source on Rabbah, Hans v. Rossum) It remains quite amazing that so many of these glass aryballoi survived. Some even with the carrying accoutrements like the one in the v. Rossum collection (HVR 070) with its bronze stopper and bronze chain. Many collectors like these objects hence many are found in the respective collections. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As stated, many collectors love the forms and shapes of these basically customary products of their times. Accolades to the glassmakers of those days.

Description: This aryballos is made of somewhat darkish green glass. The body shape is a flattened globular form, or a squat form also sometimes called bi-conical. What’s in a name. The two so called dolphin-shaped handles were attached after the disc shaped spout was formed. The in the manufacture of the object formed long neck was pushed back, flattened, and rolled up- and inwards. The object was free blown hence a missing pontil-mark. The object has some inside iridescence. Would be interesting to develop a discussion around the tools used by the ancient glassmakers. Did they use prongs, which could explain the absence of a pontil-mark? And, what is the reason that so few tools were found around the recovered/discovered kilns?

ONE-HANDLED CUP of Hans van Rossum

Date:1st century AD | Northwest area of the Roman Empire

Size: ↑7.5 cm | ø 7.3 cm for the body | ø 5.7 cm for the mouth| Weight 46 g

Technique:Free blown; handle applied

Classification: Kisa 1908: Band II, no. 7, p. 317 for the type of the handle

Condition: Intact, some incrustation; almost clear

Description: Transparent pale green glass; globular body, mouth widened, rim folded outward and polished in flame. Handle applied to shoulder, drawn up and attached to mouth  and in a fold, just below rim. Slightly concave base with rest of pontil.

Remarks: Especially the shape of this small cup is rare. The glass worker used the pontil so he must have made it during the second half of the first century AD. He took the time to polish the pontil scar, really remarkable.

Provenance: Ex private collection Jülich-Aachen (D)

In the 4th century in the eastern and western part of the Roman Empire the honeycomb pattern beaker became popular.  There are many parallels to this classical beaker.  At the same time there also appeared  variations of this pattern in the same parts of the Empire. This post is about these variations of the honeycomb pattern. See the honeycomb beaker below from the Nico F. Bijnsdorp Collection and click on the link to read the description of it.
