Catalogue Entry

This bottle was free-blown from greenish translucent glass. The mouth opens outward, the vertical neck spreads into the shoulders and the body then narrows near the base. The bottle is not free-standing. The same glass is used to make a thread decoration around the mouth, and the handles reach from the shoulders to the neck. The body is wrapped with four circuits of the same glass, which then continues down in a zigzag pattern to the base.
