Roman bowl at second-hand store

The glass bowl Espen Kutschera found on sale at the Salvation Army’s second-hand store in Bergen is an ancient Roman artefact.

According to the local paper Bergensavisen (BA), the glass bowl dates back to the time of the Roman Empire, making it is approximately 1900 years old. The value is estimated to NOK 50,000 (USD 7,575).

The bowl has been examined by experts in both Bergen and Copenhagen.

«I’m going to donate it to Bergen Museum,» Kutschera said to the local paper. «Such art treasures do not belong in private collections. This bowl is actually stolen goods. I’m not saying that the person who gave it to Fretex stole it, but it must have come from a tomb due to the condition it is in. It is most likely from a tomb which was plundered sometime during the 1800s.»
