    looks middle eastern , perhaps Iranian or turkey . it's old . don't think it's roman. but then agene , it cud be made to look that way.

    it looks old but without seeing it in person , tough to say for sure , have to agree its likely from the middle east somewhere

    no idea of its value or rarity , never see that sort of stuff around here

    If that is what I think it is, it's ancient glass (not just old or antique) It could be Roman. And it could be more modern Art Nouveau If it is a repro they did a good job making the glass look like it was in advanced stages of decomposition.

    I'd say you need a roman or ancient Persian glass expert to evaluate that. it's either a really decent piece of ancient glass or a very good fake. Not my area. For a garage sale find it's got a lot of potential.
