This stunning example of late Islamic glass work astounds the viewer with its sumptuous beauty. The rounded body contrasts sharply with the elegantly thin and elongated neck of the vessel. The rich green glass is accentuated and highlighted by rich swirls of golden color. It must have been the prized possession of someone who lived hundreds of years ago, but its special qualities have not faded. It must certainly appeal to the connoisseur of art and the lover of history, to whom its beauty and historical value will never fade.
