THE ROMAN GLASS GRAPE FLASK

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on July 4, 2020

Roman Grape Flasks

Grape Flasks are a type of Amphorisko used for liquids. They are decorated with a mold-blown cluster of grapes usually identical on both sides with a seam indicating where the two sides were joined. They were made in Syria, Italy and Gaul, in the first to third centuries. For this pictorial we are dividing grape flasks into three types: Realistic, Stylized and Flasks with Handles. The examples below are from private collections and museums.
