Roman Glass Flask - BB.1614
Price: $1400.00
In antiquity, beverages were served in flasks characterised by wide bases, long wide necks and flaring mouths. The shapes of such vessels made it possible to use them for mixing liquids, such as wine with water. The special necks facilitated pouring. Flasks as such became common in the Late Roman period and bear little ornamentation. This flask consists of a tubular rim, which is folded inwards, a flaring mouth, a cylindrical neck and a squat globular body sitting on a concave base. The surface is deeply pitted, with brilliant iridescence. - (BB.1614)
