Roman Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass|Vol.3


Out of stock

The three books in this set present more than 860 objects from one of the world&s most comprehensive collections of Roman glass. The catalog entries are arranged by technique. Every object is illustrated, in most cases by a color photograph and a line drawing that shows the profile. Each volume also includes concordances and an extensive bibliography.
Volume Three is divided into four sections: pendants and disks with stamped ornament; miscellaneous small objects (such as game pieces, jewelry found in Roman cemeteries, mirrors and architectural glass); imitations and forgeries, including experimental objects, copies and replicas of the Portland Vase; and 20th-century objects inspired by Roman objects.
