Nishapur, Glass of the Early Islamic Period
The city of Nishapur, located in eastern Iran, was a place of political importance in medieval times and a flourishing center of art, crafts, and trade. This publication includes survey of glass in the early Islamic period throughout the Near East and examines the site at Nishapur excavated by the Iranian Expedition of the Metropolitan Museum in 1935-40 and again in 1947. In addition, Robert H. Brill of the Corning Museum of Glass uses chemical analyzes to shed further light on the glass found at the excavation site.
