"This small blue-green flask of "colorless" glass has a spherical body with a spiral ribbing, a pushed-in base, and a tall, cylindrical neck. Two sets of thick double-looped trailed handles of a darker blue-green are attached to the rim, neck, and shoulders. The wide, flat rim is poorly crafted and folded inward. When the liquid content of the flask was poured out, the flow was controlled by a flange with a narrow opening located at the base of the neck. The flange was formed by fusing the neck to the body in a separate process. Incrustation and iridescent weathering are apparent on the outer surface of the vessel. An example similar in form, but resting on a thick pad base, may be seen in Sotheby, p. 118, no. 205." -Eunice Dauterman Maguire, Henry Maguire and Maggie J.
