Roman, Syro-Palestinian, Glass Miniature Juglet Amulet, c. 4th Century A.D.
From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex RobertHaas collection. This and a few other ex Haas miniature jug amulets offered here may be ex Kofler-Truniger lot 204. They appear to be some of the same pieces but it is difficult to be certain from the small black and white catalog photo.
"Freestanding zigzag" is a decorative techinque consisting of a freestanding coil, usually zigzagged between the rim of the vessel and the shoulder forming an open lattice free standing above the vessel's neck. On this example it is standing over the body, elevated by two coils.
In the Ernesto Wolf Collection, Marianne Stern argues the distribution of this type of juglets, from the Holy Land to western Europe, indicates they were produced in Palestine as early Christian amulets and taken as relics or souvenirs from holy areas.
