Description
Surely this lovely bottle--decorated with abstract flowers--must once itself have held perfume from are blossoms. The scent of those ancient blooms has faded, along with the world that created this exquisite treasure, but if we hold the bottle to our nose and let our mind float free, we are transported into a past whose beauty is unfaded and eternal. 0105: Bottle, free-blown brownish glass with trailed decoration. The spherical body has a short cylndrical neck which terminates in a bulge and rests on an attached ring with deeply sunken base. The body has several trailed designs and flat relief discs and a horizontal trailed band around the base of the shoulder. Syria or Palestine, 7th – 8th century. Ht. 8.9cm; Top diam. 1.6cm; Base diam. 3.1cm. Comparative material: Carboni, cat.no.5a, inv.no. LNS 39 KG, pp.26-27, cat.no.1.4b, inv.no. LNS 63 KG, pp.38-39; Israeli, cat.nos. 434 – 435, p.335.
