    Update 2/4/17: uploaded shots of 4 of my more favorite pieces - hope you like them. These had been found in a dusty crate in a warehouse in Paterson, NJ. Who knew...

    I don't have any photos of my own personal collection, but I can share a link to a video from the Corning Museum of Glass regarding the process of making these beautiful works of art. The video is entitled "Glassmakers of Herat" and it will give you a real appreciation for the artists who created these pieces.

    I will post some photos of my own pieces when I get a chance to take some - I've included a few from Google images. I absolutely love them, and I know a few very savvy antiques folks ( not me), who buy as much as they can, either for reselling or just collecting. I just collect. I hope you enjoy.

      Ivonne, When I have a chance I will post some of my own collection in somewhat larger size so the photo can reveal the craftsmanship. What is also incredible about these pieces is how sublime they feel in your hands. I've had friends hold a piece and just want to gently hug it - they do feel as if they have their own personalities.

      I've probably seen few pieces on Polish auction site and they were always sold as "ancient Rome" glass.
