Ancient Bottle


Robby R:

It comes out to about 9.3 centimeters tall (3.7 inches). The bottle was blown, has very thin glass, a trumpet-like lip, and an pontil mark on the base. It also exhibits thin strings of applied glass in a darker colour: almost black, but maybe a deep blue? The collar where the neck meets the body is made of the same colour glass as the bottle.

Is it Byzantine?

A fun characteristic is the stretch-marks in the neck, as they twist.

Thank you, and have a great day.
