58R Roman Coil-Neck Pitcher of The Allaire Collection

Date: 4th Century Size: 11cm,

Near colorless glass pitcher with flaring rim is of petite proportions standing only 11 cm high.  It is decorated with trailing at the rim and base of the neck, the use of darker turquoise glass spirals the body emphasizing the tooled indentations.  There is an applied pad base and single handle which is laid on the shoulder and drawn up and attached at the rim.  Virtually no weathering has marred the clarity of this little glass pitcher.
