Four Miniature Byzantine Glass Juglets on custom stands, ca. 4th -5th Century CE. Ex: Gershon Bineth collection, Israel. Various sizes with largest at 1 1/4", and all in excellent condition. Votive size is believed to be the property of a Lady of Nobility, or a child. Byzantine glass-making developed from existing Roman technology, which realized the decorative and architectural uses of glass and understood its physical properties.
