Web Description: 
Glassmaking in Almería dates back at least to Muslim times. The glassworks produced deep-colored, thick-walled glass. Its Baroque forms had no stylistic links to Venice, but nevertheless the glass became very popular in Spain. The same shapes continued throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, and many of them persisted into the 19th century.
