Roman glass pitcher with two handles, 200-300 A.D.

This type of bottle, in the form of a jar, with a double handle, would be destined to contain ointments or perfumes, an exquisite and select content. It is really a piece with a magnificent typology and style, one of the best examples of Roman glass development. A product with an undeniable appeal, destined for the wealthiest and most select families of Ancient Rome. Glass was a very expensive material due to its complicated composition and difficult manufacturing process. Glass, which was being developed in ancient times, acquired its peak and best development in Roman times, so much so that glass began to be used to close the windows of the baths and temples and later even the windows of wealthy houses.
