Seller: kareltjekaalkop (807) 100%, Location: Dongen, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 321379779930 Condition: Ancient with a condition to match., Material: Glass, Details: Selling another item from my extensive collection! Here we have an authentic ancient Roman glass flask that measures some 5 x 3.4 cm. This flask has been dated to around the second century A.D. thus making it around 1800 years old! It has a beautiful shape and even more beautiful iridescence. It has been professionally cleaned, preserving the character it acquired from being burried in the desert sand for almost 2 milleniums. It has a small chip from the rim which looks to be recent but overall it is in VERY good condition for a glass object of 1800 years old! I acquired it some 8 years ago at auction. I had it appraised for insurance purposes many years ago and the value was set at US$ 200 retail (the chip reduced the value significantly!) and prices have only gone up ever since. Desperate times call for desperate measures and since I'm going through such deperate times, I have set the buy-it-now price at 50% of the appraised value which should make it a very attractive deal for you. There is a little room for negociation but please don't insult me ;-) I will ship these items to anywhere in the whole wide world for a flat fee of US$ 32.50 which includes track&trace and full insurance. I will only accept Paypal on this transaction (for your protection and mine).
