Core-formed glass amphoriskos.
Opaque white trails, translucent dark blue body and handles.
Narrow, horizontal rim-disc with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; tall cylindrical neck, expanding slightly downward to sloping junction with shoulder; tall, narrow, ovoid body ending in a drawn-on elongated butt-end. Handles oval in section, tall, with vertical grooving all round, dropped on at angle at shoulder bulge and rising thence in wide sweep to rejoin vessel underneath rim.
Marvered white trail dropped on neck and, after two revolutions, wound in sloping line to shoulder, below which it forms a broad panel of three zigzag above four spiral revolutions, and then slopes downward to form one revolution with overlapping end on lower body.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed.
