Catalogue Entry

Bowl cast from dark green translucent glass. The mouth rim is flat while the body walls curve inward and transition smoothly to a flat base. Grooves are only carved on the outer surface of the cup with the two grooves of different width seen at the outer rim of the cup and two thin grooves running horizontally on the outer base of the body of the cup. The inner and outer surfaces have both been polished to a smooth finish, and the inner surface is glossy. There are a relatively large number of bubbles in the glass.
