Ancient Flame Worked & Rod Formed Glass Objects

Not all ancient Roman glass was blown glass. Using techniques much like today’s studio glass flame working or bead making, Roman artisans created a wide range of small objects, including beads, amulets, miniature vessels, jewelry inserts, bangles, gaming pieces for board games, just to name a few. Many mostly Roman but also pre-Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic, may be found on the ancient glass pages on our website. A few images are included here. Here are  links –
