Description
Archaeological evidence suggests that the ancient Levant was one of the first places in the world to produce glass, beginning in the mid-second millennium B.C. This bead, in the rich deep-blue colour popular amongst the classical-era Phoenicians was moulded by dipping a core of mud and sand into melted glass, for glass-blowing was not introduced until the Roman period. It represents a fine example of the glass worker’s skill from the cradle of glass making. Made in the form of a bead, it has been beautifully placed in a modern 18k gold setting to become a pendant. ???? - (FJ.1022)
