This bottle is a reproduction of a glass unguentarium, or ornament/oil bottle. These bottles would have been free-blown rather than molded; the elongated neck, globular body, and vivid colour were common features of these bottles in the late 1st century. The characteristics of this particular bottle suggest that it may have been produced in Syria, which became a province of the Roman Empire in 64 BC. Our reproduction has been hand-blown by Paulus Tjiang of Warkworth, Ontario.
