Vessel (unguentarium), glass, maker unknown, Roman empire, 1st and 2nd century
This very small and delicate vessel was probably made from blue glass. The surface has developed into iridescent film of white patina, while the body appears to be solid and composed of a white chalky substance with a light blue core. A further very small hollow is observable in the interior possibly a bubble of some kind. The delicate shape demonstrates a rounded and narrow body almost like a large tear drop, while the base is also rounded. The neck appears to be slightly constricted and the rim does not survive.
