The origins of glass making can be traced back at least to the 3rd millennium BC but were limited to forms that could be poured around moulds with limited ability to create a wide variety of forms. However by roughly the beginning of the 1st Century AD glass workers had found that molten glass could be manipulated with tools which enabled artisans to create a wider variety of forms.
This lovely bottle vase is a perfect example of the new forms that could be created by artisans. With a round bottom section there is a long cylindrical neck and rounded mouth rim. The bottle has some irridescent spots with the majority being covered in earthy substance.
Presented on a lucite and wire stand.
Together with its certificate of antiquity from Tarshish - J. Zadok & Sons, 18, King David Rd. Jerusalem, Israel.
Provenance: Rabbi Robert Rothman

Condition: There is an earthy substance that is on the vast majority of the surface, however there are areas where the semi translucent and iridescent qualities shine through. In good overall form and presents nicely.
