Riassunto: Catalogue of more than 300 examples of pre-Islamic and Islamic glass objects that are held in the Khalili Collection. The objects are grouped according to techniques of manufacture and decoration, and chronologically; the catalogue illustrating the development of glass making technology from its Byzantine and Sasanian beginnings into the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when European makers found new inspiration in Islamic forms. Mould formed glass and vessels with applied decoration, especially enamelling are well represented in the collection, and those with carved decoration are outstanding.
Descrizione del libro:
The Khalili Collection contains more than 300 objects that encapsulate the history of Islamic glass from its Byzantine and Sassanian antecedents to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century revivals. It contains an unparalleled group of mold-blown and pattern-molded objects--no fewer than seven of which are of the rare inscriptional type--and this wealth of material has allowed comparisons to be made between vessels from the same molds. Other significant groups comprise vessels with relief, linear and facet-cut decoration, as well as vessels on which decoration is pincered; applied in the form of trails and medallions; cold or lustre painted; and a group of enameled objects spanning the entire period when this technique was in fashion. Glass with scratched decoration--a category known mostly through small fragments--is represented here by four complete vessels.
