   PA-3010 - Ancient Roman Glass Unguentarium, c. 1st-3rd Century AD


PA-3010: (75 x 49 mm – 2 15/16 x 1 15/16 inches) A fine blown-glass “unguentarium” pleasingly formed, with a round apple-shaped body, slender neck and flared lip. The base is flattened so that it is free-standing. Glass of this shape was used to store ointments or cosmetic oils. Beautiful light blue-green glass and very fine surface patina with some areas of silver and blue iridescence – excellent condition. Provenance: Ex New York Collection. The survival of this fragile glass seems nearly miraculous. Occasionally examples where the glass has reacted to burial exhibit a shimmering iridescence that has long captivated the imagination of the most ardent collectors and artists.
Inventory Number: PA-3010
