An Ancient Rare Blown Roman Glass Apothecary Bottle Circa 200 A.d For Sale

An Ancient Rare Blown Roman Glass Apothecary Bottle Circa 200 A.d

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.
