Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque light blue trails, translucent dark blue body and handles.
Broad horizontal rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short, cylindrical neck; round-angled shoulder; cylindrical body; rounded bottom. Below shoulder, two vertical ring-handles with knobbed tails.
Unmarvered light blue trail at edge of lip; another, marvered, dropped on at shoulder and wound spirally round vessel, at first in straight lines, then, at middle of body, in zigzags, where a light blue trail begins, mingling with it. Uneven and thickly applied. Below, a twofold orange horizontal trail with overlapping ends. Jagged edge of original lip of core-formed vessel rises markedly above top of added rim-disc.
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.
