Reference.
cf. Isings 88b,

Dimensions / quality
Choice, complete and intact, much weathering, some iridescence, glass miniature juglet,
8.5 cm (3 3/8") tall, 4.1 cm (1 5/8") diameter,
finely made, free blown thin near colorless glass, bell shaped body tapering to bottom, trail handle attached below the rim and on the shoulder, kicked bottom; from the collection of Alex G. Malloy,

Note.
Miniature pottery juglets, invariably decorated with scenes involving young children, have been found in graves of Hellenistic and Roman children. Perhaps they were also used as toys in life. The purpose of this beautiful tiny juglet is uncertain but it seems quite delicate for a child's toy.
