Globular Wines (c. 1600-1650)

These bottles are some of the earliest and finest examples of Late Persian glass, in my opinion. The glass quality, density, and purity of these bottles is only similar to the Type 1 Saddle Flasks and the turquoise smalls. There is a degree of fineness to the glass that tells me they were made by an artisan rather than an assembly-line worker, and I would suggest they are some of the earliest forms of Late Persian bottles. For density and richness of the glass itself, they are also rivalled by the Long-Necked Wines (the earliest two in the collection).
