Original Message:   Welll.....
These little vessels can be difficult. There have been a great many copies made over the last many years. I once heard about an operation is Syria (before the current conflict), that was producing incredible examples using ancient techniques with modern glass. Some were even repaired on purpose.

It would be hard for me to be certain, because I have just not handled enough authentic examples myself (see Roman era perfume bottle lid below). That said, if I were to have to decide one way or the other I would say that yours is not authentic. But, I could easily be wrong, to me the patina is just not right and the colors appear off as well.

But, please seek another opinion, vessels are not really a specialty of mine.
