While the dark ages gripped Europe, an enlightened culture flourished in the Islamic east. This remarkable bottle is evidence that the glassmaking tradition of the classical world continued to thrive and produce exquisite works of art. There is a tangible vitality in the design of this splendid bottle, as if the artist was able to convey the creative energy he felt centuries ago directly to us in the present. - (G.0336)
