The Corning Museum of Glass (Corning, New York) contains 72 objects believed to date from or be in the style of the Sasanian Empire, an Iranian dynasty from the 3rd to 7th centuries. The executive director explains that the artefacts' origins are uncertain because they rarely came from controlled archeological sites. Grouped primarily by technique, catalog entries provide detailed descriptions, comments on comparable pieces in other collections, images, and item-specific references. Additional material includes notes on a forgery, chemical analyses, concordances, and drawings of vessels with distinctive applied ornament. 74 colour & 82 b/w illustrations
