Notes

Summary:
Two vials, which were blown independently, share a common wall. The unit is decorated with two raised threads that rise from the base in a spiral of five wraps each. Two handles attach at the rim and at the outer wall 2.5 cm below the rim on either side along the lateral axis. The bottle is not free-standing. The threads appear to be made of a material that is softer than glass.
