GREEK CORE FORMED AMPHORISKOS, 2ND-1ST CENT BC
Culture: GREEK/ PHOENICIAN. Date: 2ND - 1ST CENTURY BC. Material: GLASS. Provenance: EX: NYC PRIVATE COLLECTION. EX: NEW YORK ART MARKET. Condition: INTACT, WITH SOME MINOR REPAIR TOWARDS THE LOWER BODY, EXCELLENT IRIDESCENCE AND OVERALL CONDITION. Measurements: 6 INCHES HIGH, (15.5 CMS). Cf: for a closely similar example, see Sotheby's Important Ancient Glass Auction, from the Collection formed by the British Rail Fund, London, 24 November 1997, lot no. 2. Also see Group III, no. 174, pp - 171, (missing one handle), The Toledo Museum of Art, Early Ancient Glass, Core- Formed, Rod-Formed, and Cast Vessels and objects from the late Bronze Age to the early Roman Empire. A very rare type of early glass, with exceptional eye appeal. Similar objects fetch beyond $10,0000 in auctions, especialLy the non repaired ones. A closely similar one, about the same size, sold for $11,875 for an estimate of $5,000 - $7,000, (lot 113, Christie's New York Antiquities Auction, 4 June 2008). Our vast inventory of ancient art includes one of the finest and most comprehensive ancient glass collections ever assembled; it includes nearly every variety of pre-Roman, Roman, and Eastern Mediterranean ancient glass.
