Sand-Core Formed Glass Amphoriskos - G.0240
Price: $6300.00
In the seventh century B.C., the manufacture of sand-core vessels was revived in large scale in Egypt and the Near East. Although the techniques and colours suggest imitations of the New Kingdom vessels, new non-Egyptian forms were introduced to reflect the development of Greek pottery shapes.This amphoriskos has a flaring rim, a long cylindrical neck, an elongated piriform body and a knob base. It would've had two handles between the shoulder and the top of the neck, which are now missing. Yellow and white trail wounds spiral around the body and neck of the vessel.Vessels of this type were produced until the first century B.C. - (G.0240)
