Roman Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass, Volume Two
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 Two focuses on objects decorated or inscribed by inflation in a mold, objects decorated with trails or appliques, medallions and fragments of gold glass, and objects with painted, reverse-painted, painted and gilded, or gilded decoration. Each catalog entry contains a detailed description, usually accompanied by a comment on the significance of the object and notes on similar pieces in other collections. This volume contains more than 500 color illustrations and drawings.
