Core-formed glass amphoriskos.
Opaque trails, seemingly all white, but probably mixed orange and white; translucent dark green body and base-disc, handles clear greenish.
Broad rim-disc, bevelled inward, with tool-marks on upper and under surfaces; tall, cylindrical neck, expanding toward bottom to join shoulder in gentle curve; ovoid body; large, flat base-disc with convex edge. Handles dropped on at shoulder and drawn upward in S-form, meeting neck at its bottom, near its bottom, and underneath rim.
Marvered orange and white trails dropped on at rim, into upright-festoon pattern on neck and shoulder; combed feather pattern on body forming five vertical panels.
Formed on a core; rim-disc, handles and base-knob drawn on and tooled; trails drawn on, marvered (except on lip) and combed. Base-disc tooled on.
