Catalogue Entry

Cup cast from turquoise translucent glass. The mouth rim is flat while the vessel walls spread slightly outward and curve smoothly inward to meet the flat base. There is a shallow groove circling the outer surface of the mouth rim, and this groove is thought to have been cast rather than carved. Three thin horizontal grooves are cut into the outer surface of the lower body area. Both the inner and outer surfaces are polished to a smooth surface.
