Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, body and handles translucent dark blue, speckled with many opaque white spots.
Broad, horizontal rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; neck tapers upward above sloping shoulder; tall, straight-sided, cylindrical body with faint expansion downward to rounded bottom. Two knob-handles with vestigial tails and each with depression on one side, facing opposite ways.
Round hole, noticeably off-centre, in bottom, apparently intentional, perhaps to permit contents to be pushed up from below.
Unmarvered orange trail with overlapping ends round edge of lip. On body, running spirally from shoulder to basal angle, alternating orange and white marvered trails in inverted-festoon pattern in sixteen vertical strips.
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.
