The Best Antique Ancient Roman & Greek Glass For Sale

Published 8 years ago

Ancient Roman glass forms an essential part of every Roman antiquities for sale collection and refers to glass items that were produced within the Roman Empire during the time period ranging from 100 BCE-400 CE. This includes glass created in areas that included Middle East, Africa, Afghanistan, etc.

Glass making in the Roman period was primarily intended for the production of vessels. Windows glasses and mosaic tiles were also produced. Roman glass-making techniques were inspired from the technical know-how of glass makers from the Hellenistic period. The eventual invention of the glass-blowing technique saw this material becoming a common commodity. Luxury glass, on the other hand, was expensive and reserved for the nobility.
