The distinctive bluish-green color of the vessels in this case corresponds to glassware excavated along the Rhine River in the vicinity of Mainz. The body of this vessel is essentially the same as the short beaker shown nearby (2011.21), but its maker added a stem and an openwork foot. Only two other examples of this elaborated form exist.
