Glass rod


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Translucent yellowish green.
Long rod, spirally twisted, tapering towards one end, and tooled into a biconical knob at the other.
Broken at both ends, but otherwise complete; dulling, pitting, iridescence, and some patches of thick brown encrustation and weathering.

The rod is unusually large and heavy, but it may be compared with the intact stirring rods also displayed in Gallery 171, Case 17.
