Ancient and Islamic Glass: Selections from The Corning Museum of Glass

Ancient and Islamic Glass: Selections from The Corning Museum of Glass presents more than 50 objects from the Museum’s permanent collection. The objects, manufactured during the course of three millenniums, represent dozens of cultures situated over five million square miles, from Spain to Iran, and from England to Egypt. The selections represent the full functional range of glass in the premodern world—drinking vessels, perfume containers, jewelry, architectural decoration, windows, and lamps—and offer exceptional examples of royal portraiture and glassmaking tools. This book is for those who want to learn more about ancient glass—how it was made, used, and thought about in the ancient world, and again in the modern era.
