Description

This extensive collection of vessels, objects and fragments has been assembled over the past 150 years and is based largely on East Mediterranean pieces. An introductory essay in the history of ancient glassmaking is followed by a chronological catalogue which charts the major technical developments in the manufacture of glass in the ancient world, as well as making clear the distinctions between luxury glass and that used in everyday life.
