Roman Glass Unguentarium

ca.200 A.D.

A beautiful Ancient Roman translucent blue glass unguentarium with stunning iridescence. Formed by a large pyriform body; a flat base gently thickened at the centre, a relatively long narrow neck leading to a rolled-over rim. The glass displays a gorgeous and mesmerizing light blue iridescence on the body and neck.

Unguentaria were widely used throughout the Roman Empire since they contained perfume and oil, considered precious at the time and often used both in private life and public ceremonies.
