Core-formed glass amphoriskos.
Opaque white trails, translucent dark blue body and one handle, the other handle a mixture of dark blue and wine-coloured.
Broad rim-disc, bevelled inward, with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; shortish, cylindrical neck, expanding downward to join shoulder in gentle curve; elongated body, almost cylindrical until, near bottom, it tapers rapidly to a point. Large, tooled-on end-knob. Two thick handles with vertical grooving, dropped on at shoulder and drawn upward in curve to join upper part of neck. Handles vertical, high-swung with acute-angled profile at top.
White trail dropped on upper side of rim-disc and wound spirally downward to just above bottom: very uneven pattern of upright festoons from shoulder to lower body, only partly in regular strips.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed.
