Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, body and handles translucent dark blue with only sparse opaque white speckling.
Broad, horizontal rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short neck; vestigial shoulder from which faintly convex sides expand appreciably downward to basal angle; shallow, convex bottom. Two knob-handles, one with depression on one side, the other with depressions on both sides.
Unmarvered orange trail round edge of lip. Marvered orange and white trails dropped on at shoulder and wound down to basal angle, first in one or two lines of inverted festoons and then in regular overall pattern of alternating orange and white zigzags.
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.
