ROMAN GLASS TREFOIL OINOCHE
Ca.300-400AD. A tall and beautiful free-blown oinochoe formed from the translucent, pale yellow-green glass with a slightly concave base and rough pontil scar, a piriform body with a rounded shoulder, a tubular neck, a wide trefoil spout, and an applied trail handle joining rim to the body. Thick bands of trailing are applied around the neck as well as just beneath the spout rim, giving it a personalized presentation. Faint areas of silvery iridescence adorn most exterior surfaces, though brilliant silver and rainbow iridescence accentuates the interior of the rim. Fine Condition, intact; H:180mm/W:83mm;18.9/3.35in; 90gr; Provenance: Property of a London gallery, previously in old British collection formed in the 1980s.
