$90


beautifully free blown Roman glass phial (vial) or apothecary or medicine bottle of double gourd shape with a long tapering neck; the rim flattened; probably 2nd or 3rd Century AD. This is a rare example of Roman glass in excellent condition. It is free blown and made of thin, aquamarine-tinted glass .The shape suggests it may have been intended as a medicine or apothecary bottle which would have been stopped with some sort of device, possibly a cork. It may have been designed for holding poisons. The shape of the bottle and the quality of blowing is wonderful as you can see by taking a look at the photographs below. It has a double-gourd shaped lower part with a long, tapering funnel-like neck. The rim is turned over, maybe something that was intended to allow it to stand in a wooden rack or some other kind of stand. It is in superb condition with very little surface discoloration, oxidation, and wear. This is a desirable collector's item if you like early Roman glass and something you are not likely to come across very often.
