Delicate Glass Jug from the Roman Period
Glassblowing was invented during the Early Roman period. This new technique made it much easier and less expensive to produce glass. Because of this, glass vessels became very popular and widespread during the Roman period.
This delicate glass jug features a wide, splayed rim, and thin looping handle, and a decoration of coils of fine, spun glass. The base of the jug is pushed in, creating stability for the vessel. The glass is a lovely bluish-green. The color of ancient glass depends on the naturally occurring minerals in the materials used to make the glass. Thus, it can be possible to learn the manufacture location of the glass based on its color. Glass of this blueish-green color is made from the natural sand present in Israel.
