Primary Description: 
Bluish green, transparent; blown, pinched. Rim outsplayed, with rounded lip and irregular “collar” made by folding out and down; wall has S-shaped profile and merges with rounded base: circular pontil mark (D. 1.2 cm). Parison was pinched in two places (2.6 cm apart) to form two horizontal holes (L. 0.5 cm and 0.8 cm) in thickness of upper wall on inside and corresponding protrusions on outside behind lower edge of collar. Glass is very bubbly indeed.
