Description

Roman glass bottle with extremely nice blue color patina

What you see in this photo is four inches long Roman glass bottle.
In the Roman Empire glass was highly prized commodity and used in the whole Empire.

Glass then was created in two stages. First the raw material was smelted from sand in intense heat then passed onto blowers to form the intended product.

Roman glass, many archeologists believe started in Syria and Sidon. After the Romans invaded the area, they took the development of glass manufacturing and blowing one step further to create the amazing pieces we find today.
