Description

This inkwell, with its cylindrical form and lug handles, is similar to one in the L.A. Mayer Memorial Institute for Islamic Art which was exhibited in Jeruaslem in 1979 (see: Hasson R., Early Islamic Glass, Jerusalem 1979, p.8, no.10). A further comparable example is illustrated in Sammlung Erwin Oppenlander, Glaser der Antike, Hamburg 1974, p.249, no.724.

A similar inkwell was sold in these rooms on 14 April 2010, lot 101.
