Object Description

Flared beaker of greenish glass blown into a four-part mold (including the base). Six rows of graduated drop-shaped motifs, arranged in offset horizontal registers, decorate the exterior. The rim is plain and cut. The mouth is enhanced by two wheel-incised lines just below the rim, and a concentric ring articulates the bottom of the vessel above the flattened vase. There are also two mold-made concentric rings on the bottom of the vase.
