Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, body and handles translucent dark green. Speckled with many opaque white spots.
Broad, horizontal rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; high, cylindrical neck with downward taper; pronounced angular shoulder; tall, straight-sided, cylindrical body with faint expansion downward to rounded bottom. Two knob-handles in form of two bead-like knobs with depressions facing upward, perhaps pre-formed and dropped on body below shoulder, one further down than the other.
Unmarvered orange trail with overlapping ends round edge of lip. Body covered with closely-set feather pattern of marvered spiral trails of orange and white, mainly in alternating groups, in seven vertical panels, which end, at top and at bottom, in eight well-marked loops.
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.
