Roman Clear Glass Jar with applied Threading

Rome, ca. 2nd to 4th century CE. Comprised of free-blown translucent glass, a lovely vessel presenting a spherical body wrapped with fine horizontal applied threading all the way to the concave bottom showing a nice broken pontil, a short neck and funnel mouth with an out-folded rib. The fine trail of opaque glass was carefully wound around the entire body of the vessel from the bottom to the base of the neck. The surface presents nice areas of rainbow and blue-green iridescence. A fabulous example! Custom lucite stand with a small recess, cleverly designed to fit the protruding broken pontil on the base. Size: 3.375" in diameter x 3.25" H (8.6 cm x 8.3 cm); 3.625" H (9.2 cm) on stand

Condition: Minor losses to horizontal trailing. Else intact and excellent.
