Seller: rbism (3,904) 99.1%, Location: Vista, California, Ships to: US, Item: 252640308990 RBISM Up for your consideration is a clump of Pompeii Glass all fused together 1-3 Century AD This is the real stuff, not that fake Roman glass sold in jewelry on QVC....this is what it looks like when it is melted together with hot lava and steam Beginning in 2007 I have been liquidating Antiquities of an old estate (97) year old gentleman's collection This is the last piece of Pompeii glass I have to sell from this old collection. Over the years I have sold 3 beakers and 2 cups. The item comes from an old collection which started in Mexico in 1957. The elderly gentleman who owns the item has advanced Alzheimer's now. In the box of Pompeii glass he collected, was this item of which nobody could identify....so I thought it was metal and scratched it on a numismatic stone to test with acid to see what the metal was....to my surprise, the object splintered like glass when rubbed on the abrasive stone. It is in fact glass all fused together. Lyndon was too old to remember where he got this item, but since it was together with the other Pompeii Glass, one can only put 2+2 together and realize this too is Pompeii Glass This object was with the other beakers and wrapped up for protection as the others were. It weights 4 ounces and measures 4-1/4 inches long by 2-1/2 inches wide by 1-1/8th inches thick...the last photo in this listing is of an image of the item on it's side. The object is quite interesting and unique and real. Could be taken apart and put into jewelry Please see images for all the details Shipping will be provided Condition: Please see images, Material: Fused Glass particles from Volcanic death, Provenance: Some
