Could the person who last touched this vase in antiquity have envisioned that it would survive the fall of Rome and a dozen other empires since? In the classical world as now, glass was thought of as something delicate and perishable. This unusual vessel proves that appearances can be deceiving: where time has crumbled man's vanities it has rewarded the perseverance of the glass by making it lovelier. - (G.0193)
