Description
At the height of the Roman Empire, this magnificent vessel perhaps held rare oils or precious attars, some substance worthy of the container. Though the Romans perfected its manufacture, glass was still considered a luxury item until modern times. A large piece like this was treated as a work of art. Its present beauty, elusive as a dream, derives from the blending of elegant shape, delicate color, and rarity. While many great empires have come and gone since it was new, this superb vessel has survived the ages intact. Its graceful charm transcends time: we share our pleasure with people who lived centuries ago. - (GF.0202)
