Core-formed glass amphoriskos.
Opaque orange and opaque white trails, faintly translucent dark olive green body, clear golden brown handles and end-knob.
Narrow rim-disc, bevelled inward, with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; longish, cylindrical neck, joining 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. 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-five 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.
