An early masterpiece of the glassmaker's art, this graceful amphora seems aglow with the bright colors of a Mediterranean spring. When the artistic legacy of Greece had spread throughout the ancient world, some beautiful woman perhaps adorned herself with the perfume it contained. If we hold it to our nose as she did, we can perhaps catch the faint melancholy fragrance of those flowers that bloomed so long ago... - (G.0240)
