This beautifully illustrated volume presents sixty-eight objects from one of the world's finest collections of post-classical glass--including such marvels as glass imitating rock-crystal and other semi-precious stones, glass formed into large and intricate shapes, and glass decorated with engraving, enameling, gilding, and carving. Each object is painstakingly described and a series of essays provide a wealth of background information.
