Description
The Sixteenth Century in particular was the golden age of Turkish glass-making, as it was for Europe as well. "The various glass articles made throughout the centuries among the Ottomans in their domestic workshops are valuable examples indicating what the Turkish workman could put forth with his intelligence and skill in the matter of meeting material needs, and at the same time indicating with what delicate taste he worked in order to satisfy the feeling for the fine arts in his soul. The oil lamps, tulip vases, flower vases, rosewater flasks, spouts, bowls made of plain or coloured glass or of crystal, carafes, cooling vessels, flasks, glasses, cups and sugar bowls, mirrors, glass decorations, bottles for perfumes, drugs, and illumination, and in addition the bombshells for use in the army, the lanterns for the fleet, the lamp glasses, and the various glass articles and lancet windows made of coloured glass in old structures will be sufficient to prove this statement."

This Ottoman Mosque hanging light blue glass lamp is in waisted globular form with everted rim, the very rare original chains are attached on three glass loops on the shoulder of the lamp.
