Born of sand and fire,glass is a fascinating material with multiple properties. Despite its fragility, it is an indispensable witness in the study of ancient civilizations. The invention of the blown glass technique in the middle of the 1st century BC represents a veritable revolution in the history of the glass craft.

This second volume of the Louvre's collections of antique glass brings together 1349 blown glass objects, mainly from the Department of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities. Luxury and common glassware, from the simple perfume bottle to the most elaborate pieces, offer a rich panorama of the forms and decorations used in different parts of the ancient world. The book is organised according to the dating and provenance of the objects.
