Roman Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass, Volume Three
By David Whitehouse
The three books in this set present more than 860 objects from one of the world's most comprehensive collections of Roman glass. The catalog entries are arranged by technique. Every object is illustrated, in most cases by a color photograph and a line drawing that shows the profile. Each volume also includes concordances and an extensive bibliography.
Volume Three is divided into four sections: pendants and disks with stamped ornament; miscellaneous small objects (such as game pieces, jewelry found in Roman cemeteries, mirrors and architectural glass); imitations and forgeries, including experimental objects, copies and replicas of the Portland Vase; and 20th-century objects inspired by Roman objects.
- Volume Three: 265 pages; hardcover.
- Measures approx. 12.25 inches H. x 9.25 inches W.
- Published in 2003 by The Corning Museum of Glass; Distributed by Hudson Hills Press.
