Here’s the heart and soul of the site – photos of a broad cross-section of glass used in late Persian times that make up my research collection, with some additions from museums and elsewhere. The bottles, like all other bottles in all other times and places, held a variety of contents. Among them: rose water, lemon juice, wine (particularly Shirazi wine), medicines, perfumes and unguents, pickled fruits, vinegar and water.
Late Persian Glass
This site appears to be a recent innovation and one that has long been called for. I’m most appreciative to see that someone has taken the time and effort to put this up…. is a wonderful beginning to put an end to the long time misunderstandings and misconceptions eople have regarding late Persian glass. This is great…I’ll be back often
Thank you, Marlena!! Much much work remaining to be done, but an absolute joy to do!!
I am glad to see that you have gotten this far in your study, Phil! The worldwide distribution of these bottles as a result of the Shiraz wine-making industry makes them candidate as useful archaeological culture/trade markers. Instant recognition of many shards of these bottles is possible, as for a number
of other bottles they may have been confused with, once the differences in the bottles have become familiar. Thank you for your work, friend!
Back for another visit here…my God are these beautiful. And so much more enjoyable with the stunning quality of photos presented. Does it get any more beautiful than this???
