Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque light blue trails, body and handles translucent cobalt blue. No noticeable white speckling.
Narrow rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short neck tapers upward above misshapen shoulder; convex body with very little expansion downward to rounded bottom. Two small knob-handles, each with depression facing upward.
No trail at lip. Continuous marvered trail dropped on below shoulder and finishing at basal angle; at top, two straight revolutions, then three or four revolutions of inverted festoons above a main panel of zigzags, which ends, below, in one straight revolution.
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. Handles dropped on and coiled.
