Core-formed glass amphoriskos.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, translucent dark blueish-green body, clear pale green handles and end-knob.
Narrow rim-disc, bevelled inward, with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; longish, cylindrical neck, tapers downwards to join shoulder in gentle curve; ovoid body, tapers, from not far below shoulder, rapidly to a point. Small, elongated, tooled-on end-knob with slender shank, uneven on under-side. Two thin handles with vertical grooving, dropped on at shoulder, rise vertically to above level of rim and bend downward thence at sharp acute angle to join upper neck.
Marvered orange and white trails from below rim to just above end-knob. Trails in simple spirals on rim, neck, shoulder and bottom, and in upright festoons, in twenty-four vertical strips on upper and middle body.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed.
