ANTIQUESmall 2,000-YEAR-OLD MOUTHBLOWN BLUE ROMAN GLASS DECORATED CUP with HANDLE
This piece comes from my grandmother's estate, and was found in the 1950s, off the coast of Italy by my cousin, who is a diver. Incredible, delicate, small Roman glass cup with handle (think Demitasse cup) is completely mouthblown, and amazingly thin-walled for a piece of Roman glass. The foot is thick and nearly solid, with a rough pontil on the bottom, and no indication of maker. There is an applied handle, and a lovely applied flower on the front, with 5 applied petals and an applied, pebbly center. The glass is a pale cobalt blue, darker where the glass is thicker.

Has air bubbles, iridescence, and ocean grunge. I honestly never knew the Romans were as good at glassmaking as they obviously were. And this is a prime example! No damage anywhere that I can see; has grunge from being in the ocean for a couple of millennia.

2 3/4" tall x 3 1/2" in diameter at the flower and handle (2 3/4 without). NOTE: As of January 27, 2013, the United States Postal Service significantly raised their rates again up to 21% on some services! Please contact me for details.
