A Four Handle Glass Vase

DESCRIPTION:

This vase dates from the early half of the 1st millennium AD, when the Byzantine Empire was flourishing and expanding from its historical origins of modern day Turkey. Glassblowing originated somewhere along the Syro-Palestinian coast only a few hundred years before this vase was made, so the distinct markings of this vase would have been highly valued throughout the region.
