Measuring 7 1/2" high, this Greek terracotta spindle bottle or flask dates to the 3rd or 4th century BC. It has a buff colored surface, over the red terracotta body, with evidence of calcified mineral deposits. The neck has been broken and reglued, and there is a chip to bottom of lip, and some slight filing on base, likely to enable it to stand more easily. The flask is a lovely form, with bulbous ovoid shape and thin neck and base.
