Antigua Roma Vidrio Colgante con Diseño Zoomorfo

Antigua Roma Vidrio Colgante con Diseño Zoomorfo
Circa 1st-3rd Century AD

An incredibly fine Ancient Roman moulded glass pendant, with the image showing a zoomorphic creature, possibly a horse or stag. There is a suspension loop on the top of the bead. The pendant has a lovely iridescence to it. The reverse remains smooth and unworked.

As in many societies in antiquity, jewellery was an important social marker used to demonstrate wealth in the Roman Empire. With the expansion of the empire, Roman jewellery became more elaborate in its design, as goldsmiths were influenced by the range of styles, materials and techniques used by craftsmen in these newly conquered territories. By incorporating these foreign techniques and new designs, Rome could reflect its position as a prosperous and dominant conquering city. Roman jewellery was enriched and embellished with precious, semi-precious stones and glass beads.

Measurements: circa 2.2cm height

Provenance: Ex important Spanish collection, Madrid Gallery.
