A fine Roman Glass Juglet, Roman Imperial Period, ca. 1st century CE
This object qualifies for free USA shipping and a flat rate fee of $60 if shipping internationally.
This charming little juglet is free-blown from pale green glass. The globular body is well rounded, continuing to a vertically slender neck, and the mouth, flaring outward, is finished with a small "collar" rim. Obtained from modeling a circular glass band, the blue-green handle shows the artisan’s skill: it was first applied to the shoulder, raised vertically, then bent at an acute angle before being folded and attached to the lip.
Dimensions: Height: 2 1/2 inches (6.3 cm)
Condition: This bottle shows minor weathering and mineral accretions and like many glass vessels of this type, the glass is naturally translucent but somewhat “muddy” in appearance as glass is a fragile material and easily affected by exterior conditions. There is scattered pale iridescence, particularly to the shoulder. It is intact and in very good condition overall with no chips, cracks, or breaks.
Provenance: Hollis, Queens, NY private collection, then by descent.
