Catalogue Entry

Flask blown from greenish translucent glass which was then formed in a two-part mold. There is a slight protrusion on the upper right of the flask's face where a slight gap formed between the two halves of the mold. The long thin face has a long free-blown bottle neck above, and the bottle has a slim overall proportion. A knotted cord-like depiction can be seen beneath the face. This bottle was probably used to hold perfumed oils.
