Seller: artancientltd (9,489) 99.4%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 291224468750 Original or Reproduction: Original, Genuine or Reproduction: Genuine, Details: An ancient Roman glass serving dish, dating to 350 – 500 AD. A beautifully balanced glass dish and an exceptional example of its type. Although the elite of society would eat from gold and silver plates, many more used glass vessels for serving meals, for drinking and for washing their hands between courses. There is no other material that endures the ages so beautifully as glass, it not only survives, but is truly enhanced by the passing of time. Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow lends her name to the word for this effect; iridescence. The use of her name is apt, caused naturally over time, it results in a rainbow-like dance of colour playing across the surface of the glass. When it was first made, this dish was already a beautiful object, yet now it displays an ethereal quality. For a similar published example please see: Whitehouse, D. 2001. Roman Glass in the Corning Museum of Glass: Volume One. Pg. 71. New York: Corning Museum. Diameter: 9 inches. Condition: Very good, with a small stable crack to the centre of the dish, as shown. Unrestored. Provenance: Ex. French private collection of Monsieur B., acquired 1960's.
