Egyptian miniature glassware vessels

Egyptian miniature glassware vessels, from the New Kingdom, dated to the 18th Dynasty 1550-1307 BC. The method of production was to wind threads of molten glass around a core of sand, clay, and mud. These vessels were used mainly for storing perfumed ointments, scented oils, and cosmetics. They are thought to have been produced in royal workshops during the reign of either Amenhotep III or Akhenaten. From the Freer and Sackler Galleries of Washington D.C.
