A Roman Amber Glass Bottle, ca. 2nd - 3rd century CE

Sale price1,200 USD

This object qualifies for free USA shipping and a flat rate fee of $60 if shipping internationally.

Of pale amber glass, the small, squat bottle with trailings around the circular body, standing on a small disc foot.

Dimensions:   Height:  3 inches (7.5 cm)

Condition:   Loss of some trailing to the exterior, otherwise intact and in very good condition overall.  Interestingly, there appears to be a thick glass repair made to the lower body done at the time of manufacture.  This can be determined because trailing glass has been applied over the top of the "repair". 

Provenance: Estate of Dr. Seymour Ira Schwartz  (1928 – 2020), Rochester, New York.   Dr. Schwartz, an eminent surgeon, and prolific polymath was the founding editor of the 1,800-page surgery textbook, first published in 1969, that became a bible for medical students.  He was one of the most prolific and honored surgeons in American history with further successes outside of the field of medicine as a renowned author and cartographic historian.
