R17 Blue Roman Bottle of The Allaire Collection

 

 

Date: First Century Size H: 13 cm

 

Description: This beatifull deep blue Roman glass bottle follows the very popular trend for colored glass during the First Century. Blown paper thin into a simple yet elegant shape, it has an elongated globular body and tall neck ending in a tiny but precisely worked rim. The bottle was amazingly repaired using mostly the original pieces. See below what the bottle looked like before the repair.
