Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange, opaque white and opaque light blue trails, body and handles opaque dark blue. Speckling, if any, obscured by weathering.
Narrow rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short 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, at uneven heights.
Unmarvered orange trail at lip. Trails on body begin with four straight revolutions of white at shoulder above groups of white, light blue and orange feather pattern extending from top to bottom of body in eight vertical panels.
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. Rim-disc higher than top of core-formed neck.
