Wonderfully colored set of 4 Roman glass pieces. These are genuine antiquities from the Roman Empire era that have survived centuries despite their fragile nature.
The Romans invented glass blowing and made it possible to produce glass bottles in large numbers. For the past two thousand years glass bottles have been used as containers for all kinds of liquids. Variations in shape have been designed for easy transportation, for aesthetic reasons, to contain the pressure within the bottle, or to make the contents appear more. Glass bottles have been made since pre-Roman times, using core-formed techniques involving wrapping a coil of molten glass around a shape made of mud and straw, and other materials which could be removed from the bottle once it cooled.
