Conical beaker with ornamental blobs

PDC 23099

Conical beaker with ornamental blobs
PDC 23099a Gilan Province. 3rd-5th century. Height 19.1 cm., diameter 9.2 cm. Private collection, Tokyo.
A rhyton-shaped vessel of thin white translucent glass. On the upper half are two groups of five blobs of blue glass, arranged to form two inverted triangles opposite each other, with two larger blobs of blue glass between the triangles. The rim is finished in an unusual fashion: it curves outward and then turns upward. There are horizontal incised lines above and below the blobs.
