Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, body and handles translucent cobalt blue with no white speckling.
Narrow rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; neck tapers upward above well-marker, rounded shoulder; convex body with very little expansion downward to rounded bottom. Two small knob-handles, each with depression facing upward. Handles at uneven heights below shoulder.
No trail at lip. Marvered orange trail dropped on at shoulder and joined, after three straight revolutions, by white trail to start a feather pattern which continues thence downward without breaks in alternating groups of white and orange in seven vertical panels to end at basal angle in two straight white revolutions.
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.
