SINGLE LOOPED HANDLE ROMAN GLASS PITCHER

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on August 24, 2020

31R Single Handle Pitcher of Allaire Collection

                                                          Date: First Century    Height: 13 cm

 

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.
