Susan Auth, Ancient glass at the Newark Museum,
Globular body is attached to a cylindrical neck of 2 cm. diameter. Neck rises 1.7 cm. from the body and then flares out. Rim is triangular. Where the neck meets the body, an aperture of small diameter pierces the throat. The neck seems to be continuous with the body so that the aperture would have been made by folding the neck in upon the top of the globe and then out again. The surface design is a dot-in-square pattern. The vessel is free-standing. There is a small, 0.5 cm. hole in the vessel wall.
Condition: Very good.
