Glass: Sasanian Antecedents to European Imitations

Sidney M. Goldstein

The Khalili Collection contains more than 300 examples of pre-Islamic and Islamic glass objects that encapsulate the history of ancient glass. This catalogue illustrates the development of glass-making technology from its Byzantine and Sasanian beginnings, and follows it into the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when European makers found new inspiration in Islamic forms.
