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 form vase has an intriguing mouth with a piece of glass that splits the mouth aperture into halves appearing similar to a pigs snout. The wonderfully formed, globular base rises to the elegant, cylindrical neck with a flared mouth with partition through the middle.
Together with its certificate of antiquity from Tarshish - J. Zadok & Sons, 18, King David Rd. Jerusalem, Israel.
Provenance: Rabbi Robert A. Rothman
3 1/4"H

Condition: The surface finish has a nice iridescent quality but it is uncertain whether there is fracturing or if it is inherent to the glass. There does appear to be a small hairline in the bulbous bottom but overall the vase is stable and presents well.
