Two fragments of a core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque white trails, translucent cobalt blue body and handles.
Rim disc horizontal, tall neck, sloping shoulder, short cylindrical body with markedly convex sides, rounded bottom. Two horizontal lug-handles at same height as shoulder, tooled in folds.
Unbroken marvered white trail dropped on at rim and wound down to basal angle in simple, uneven spiral revolutions on neck, and in beautifully regular feather pattern all over body in five vertical panels.
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.
