Core-formed glass alabastron.
Opaque orange and opaque light blue trails; body and handles translucent dull green with, exceptionally, many tiny opaque white and a few red spots.
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. One handle slightly higher than the other on body.
Unmarvered trail round edge of lip. Marvered trail dropped on at shoulder and wound spirally downward, at first in straight lines, then in zigzags. Close below this a single zigzag band of trailing, and, lower down, a threefold mingled orange trail with overlapping ends. Colour-pattern of most of trailing difficult to decipher, since most of it is lost. Probably it was all orange (including lip-trail, of which only the channel remains), except for two revolutions of light blue zigzag at bottom of main trail.
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.
Original lip of core-formed vessel visible on a level with inner edge of added rim-disc.
