Core-formed glass amphoriskos in two pieces.
Opaque light blue and opaque orange trails, translucent dark blue body and handles.
Some minor chipping on lip. Thick film of milky weathering all over, flaking off and leaving pits, with iridescence.
Broad, inward-sloping rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; tallish, cylindrical neck joining sloping shoulder in obtuse-angled curve; tall, ovoid body; base-knob with convex edge, flat on under-side. Two vertical handles, round or oval in section dropped on shoulder, drawn up and folded inward to junction of rim and neck.
Unmarvered orange trail round edge of lip. Marvered orange trail dropped on underneath rim and wound spirally down, at first, on neck and shoulder, in many straight revolutions, then, at bulge in body, joining with a light blue trail in a zigzag panel, below which the orange trail slopes down alone to two(?) more straight revolutions. Ends well below the zigzag panel in a thick horizontal revolution.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed. Original core-formed lip visible on inner edge of rim-disc, but does not protrude above it.
