Seller: thehistorybank (12,205) 99.9%, Location: Woodinville, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 122240870169 A GLANCE AT THIS ROMAN GLASS CONTAINER AND MOST PEOPLE WILL THINK IT IS POTTERY BECAUSE OF THE NEARLY PERFECT SHAPE AND THE COLOR. IN FACT IT IS LIGHT AS A FEATHER AND AN EXAMPLE OF SOME OF THE FINER ROMAN GLASS WORK WE'VE SEEN IN TERMS OF SHAPE AND AESTHETICS WHILE STILL BEING VERY SIMPLE AND FUNCTIONAL. THE PHOTO OF THE INSIDE SHOWS LIGHT COMING THROUGH THE GLASS DESPITE IT BEING COATED WITH AN ALMOST PAINT-LIKE THIN COATING FOR HAVING BEEN BURIED FOR TWO MILLENNIA. EVEN AS I PHOTOGRAPHED THIS PIECE (MY APOLOGIES FOR MEDIOCRE PICTURES!) I WAS SURPRISED DESPITE THE FACT THAT I KNEW HOW LIGHT IT IS. CERTAINLY A GREAT DEAL OF ROMAN GLASS CONTAINERS SEEM ALMOST PAPER THIN. AND THE COLOR IS THE RESULT OF BEING BURIED SO LONG. THERE IS NO ENCRUSTATION BUT THE TRANSLUCENT GLASS HAS BEEN STAINED OR COLORED FROM WHATEVER SOIL IT WAS BURIED IN FOR SO LONG. A VERY BEAUTIFUL PIECE, VERY WELL MADE, ABOUT 4 INCHES HIGH AND NEARLY AS WIDE. WE WILL SEND THIS POSTPAID AND INSURED TO THE WINNING BIDDER.
