Cremation burial jar. The lid and jar are made from glass of very different colours, but both are well formed and finished, and well matched in terms of size. The jar contains a large quantity of cremated bone, poorly incinerated. Underside of the lid is turned down to form a lip. It is reeded on the exterior and fire-rounded. The handle of the lid is hollow and more crudely made; formed by pinching the top, folding out and under, then flattening on a marver. The shoulder is slightly uneven at one point.
