An early pale yellow-green mold blown bottle of mallet shape. The conical neck with two narrow rings at the top and a knop-like bulge at the bottom. At the shoulder of the bottle is a molded brown tinted circle. The bottle body is decorated with three raised circular reserves, each with a flower within, and surrounded by radiating leaves.

This very rare bottle has survived its long burial without damage. It is also remarkable in that most of the outside retains its original fire finish while the interior, for the most part, has little decomposition with only some light iridescence which has not rendered the glass opaque. The height of the bottle is 7 1/2", and has a base diameter of 3 7/8".

NOTES: 1. For similar examples see "Glass from the Ancient World" by Ray Winfield Smith in the Collection Catalog, Corning Museum #472. Also see "The Connoisseur" December 1964 for the article "The Pilkington Museum of Glass" by Hugh Tait.

2. This jar was purchased in 1969 from Howard Phillips, a London dealer specializing in ancient glass, and has remained in a private collection since then.
