Glass cinerary urn

From the 1st century A.D., the blowing technique was discovered in Rome and was the most widely used technique for the manufacture of parts, as it simplified production and made it possible to generate numerous shapes for new functions at lower cost. The plasticity of glass when blown is what made it possible to give different shapes to the objects. For this reason, glass becomes an object of everyday life. The high technical and artistic quality achieved by the masters of vitrum, left us pieces of exceptional importance like this one, a cinerary urn of ovoid body, where the taste for the natural color of blue-green glass predominates. The function of this urn was to contain the cremated remains of the deceased along with the grave goods that belonged to him.
