Blue glass funerary lacrimatory, Ancient Rome

Blue glass funerary lacrimatory, Ancient Rome

Very old blue glass bottle, called " lacrymatoire " used during Roman times.
The bottle has a ball-shaped base and an elongated neck. In its juice with traces of seniority and wear.

These vials are called “ lacrimatoires ” derived from “ lacrimal glands_cc78 1905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_”, because we thought that they were used to receive the tears of the parents at the time of a death. Presumably, these objects were indeed used during funerary rituals and were placed in the tomb of the deceased, but they would rather have been used for ointments.

It is an authentic archaeological object that can complete a cabinet of curiosities or an art collection.
