Web Description: 
This vessel was tooled from one bubble of glass. It has a high, funnel-shaped bowl above a squat inverted baluster and a high trumpet-shaped foot with a rough pontil mark. The irregular, solid annular knop above the foot is made of a thick trail of glass, which fused the opening between the bowl and the base. Two thin, curved handles with pincered trails were applied to the lower part of the bowl and to the baluster. The glass is very bubbly, with small black impurities and, near the rim, faint amethyst striations. (see 79.3.1125)
