Ancient History

We step again into our time machine with these antique glass objects that can be categorized as "Grand Tour Souvenirs". This prized pair of Amphora are ancient Roman style glass housed in reproduction bronze Pompeii stands with lion's heads & claw details.  This type of keepsake would have been sold to wealthy travelers in Italy during the 19th century. The glass has a beautiful opalescent sheen and almost iridescent quality to the green coloration.
12" tall & sold only as a pair
