This stunning globular bottle has a short, slightly flaring neck. Two long applied threads encircle the top of the body. The main decoration consists of a network of irregular rhomboids, lightly applied with a continuous thread. The elegance of this piece is increased by the milky white coating caused by weathering over the centuries
