Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange, opaque white and opaque light blue trails, body and handles opaque dark blue, speckled with many opaque white spots of scum.
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 ring-handles without tails.
Body covered in trails combed one way into upright-festoon pattern of mingled colours in eighteen 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.
