Finely wrought glass bottles and jars were created in ancient Israel by craftsmen working with a blow-pipe at the glass furnace. Over the centuries these glass vessels gained additional charm from the iridescent coloring caused by the weathering of the glass.
Blown from a glass tube and chemically colored, this vessel is a copy of an ancient vase found locally and exhibited at the Israel Museum.
This item comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a short description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
