Fragment from shallow dish: fragment of the rim and adjoining body of a shallow dish. Made in an open or two-piece mould from rods of colourless transparent glass, each enclosing an opaque white thread formed into a spiral twist. The bands are arranged on a diagonal. Suggestive of the 'vitro di trina' of the Venetian factories. The fragment has a rim of opaque blue and white glass coloured to imitate a twisted cord but the glass itself is not so shaped.
