    Known as an alabastron, this Roman glass bottle is an ancient wonder. Formed from a glowing golden glass that fades to green, the piece exhibits the slight iridescence that makes Roman glass so prized. A container used to hold perfumed oils, the alabastron is named after alabaster, the material from which the original examples were crafted by ancient Egyptians. A truly ancient treasure, this is an extraordinary piece for collectors of both glass and items from antiquity. Held in its later, hand-crafted stand.
