Catalogue Entry

This bottle was blown from reddish purple glass and molded in a two-part mold down to the base. The handles are greenish translucent glass and are attached at the neck and the shoulders. This appears to be a glass copy of the giant amphora shaped ceramic vessels used to carry wine and other liquids. This bottle is thought to have been used to contain perfumed oils.
