Cosmetic Perfume or Unguent Applicator, ca. 1st-4th Cent.
Copper alloy; 68mm/11.0gm
Con/ Dark green patina, no plow bends, cleaned and waxed.
Just like now, Roman women bought expensive perfumes, oils and creams; this applicator was used to apply such perfumes, creams or oils to the face and neck of a wealthy Roman woman.
Very rare in this condition, it is museum quality, for sure.
