Here is a superb ancient Roman empire glass beaker.
The beaker constructed of transparent glass has exceptional iridescence from thousands of years of age. Applied in a border to the center of the beaker is trailed snake decorations in green appearing like delicate lace.
This vessel is intact and is in lovely condition for it's age and authenticity. In one section as the photos show the threaded trailed decorations are lost. In the most part the applied decorations are intact and gorgeous. It is astonishing that this piece has survived so intact through the millennia.
It measures 6 1/4" tall and has an average diameter of 3 1/2" (159mm x 89mm).
This exceptionally rare ancient roman empire glass vessel would make a perfect acquisition for any collection of ancient art.
An Antiquity Report accompanies this special piece.
