From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex Robert Haas collection.
Wheel-cut decorative patterns were used primarily on colorless glass vessels. The wheel cut lines vary in depth, width and length and may be rounded or v-shaped, and the most common form is a series of horizontal lines. The technique has been used since the Hellenistic period. Wheel-incised geometric patterns were especially popular in the fourth century.
