The Alex G. Malloy Ancient Glass Collection

We have been fortunate to obtain the personal ancient glass collection of Alex G. Malloy, a former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. In addition to remarkable complete glass vessels and other objects, the collection includes a large number of fine glass fragments. These fragments are superb examples of the finest ancient glass making techniques, equal to pieces in the best museum collections. We hope you enjoy browsing this interesting collection and discover a few pieces to enhance your collection.

This small piece of glass may not seem like much but larger pieces from the master craftsmen of this workshop are very rare. Even a small fragment like this one is museum quality and suitable for an important collection.

Wheel-cut decorative patterns were used primarily on colorless glass vessels. The wheel cut lines vary in depth, width and length and may be rounded or v-shaped, and the most common form is a series of horizontal lines. The technique has been used since the Hellenistic period. Wheel-incised geometric patterns were especially popular in the fourth century.

From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex Robert Hass collection.

Enameled and gilt glass techniques developed in the in Syria in the twelfth century. These pieces were made for the rulers of the adjacent region of the Jazira (northeastern Syria, northern Iraq, and southeastern Turkey). Many pieces were inscribed with the owner's name. Mosque lamps were made for presentation to mosques by sultans and emirs, whose names, titles and official badges were part of the design. Only royalty and wealthiest could afford such fine pieces and they were so highly prized that many have survived to today in pristine condition. Some enamaled glass was made for commercial purposes and, curiously, some pieces were made with Christian themes. After Cairo became the capital of the empire, in the fourteenth century, most of the later enameled glass was made there. The last datable piece of Islamic enameled glass was made at Cairo in 1461 or 1462. By the end of that century Mamluk style gilded and enameled glass lamps were being made in Europe, especially at Venice.
