BID HISTORY

DESCRIPTION

Perfumer. Rome, Eastern Mediterranean workshops, 1st century AD.
Blown and transparent glass.
In good condition. With iridescence.
Provenance: private collection.
Certificate issued in 1974 is attached.
Measurements: 7 cm (height).
Small bottle-perfumero of globular body and high neck without lip destined to contain perfumes of feminine personal use. It could be a piece from the boudoir (gynaecum) of a young woman who was not handcuffed and who used perfumes very discreetly.
The use of glass began to become widespread from the 1st century AD, following the discovery of the technique of glassblowing around 40 BC, in the eastern part of the Mediterranean coast. This technique was a major revolution and spread rapidly. Blown glass offered great advantages over other materials because it did not change the taste of the food it contained and was more impermeable than terracotta. In addition, the blowing technique made it possible to produce pieces in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and also to produce them more quickly. On the other hand, glass pieces were easier to clean, so it soon became the favourite material for domestic use.
