Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque light blue trails, translucent cobalt blue body and one handle, the other handle opaque orange.
Broad horizontal rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short, cylindrical neck; round-angled shoulder; elongated oval body with maximum diameter below the middle; rounded bottom. Below shoulder, two vertical ring-handles with knobbed tails.
Unmarvered orange trail round edge of lip; another, marvered, beginning at top of handles and wound spirally round vessel, at first in straight lines, then in zigzags at middle of body, where a light blue trail begins, mingling with it. Overlapping lowest part of zigzag are two horizontal orange trails flanking a light blue trail, all unmarvered.
Core-formed; rim-disc and handles trailed on and tooled, the handles formed by drawing upward from a drop-on at bottom and folding inward over a tool to make the ring.
