Core-formed glass alabastron. 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.
Opaque light blue and opaque white trails, body and handles opaque dark brown. Broad horizontal rim-disc, tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; short, cylindrical neck; round-angled shoulder; cylindrical body; rounded bottom. Below shoulder, two vertical ring-handles with knobbed tails. Unmarvered light blue trail round edge of lip. Marvered mixed light blue and white trails droppe on at neck and wound spirally downward together to bottom, the upper revolutions (to bottom of handles) straight, and the rest zigzags, except for one combined straight revolution at bottom.
Two pieces of rim missing. Much milky weathering and iridescence, largely obscuring the colours.
