Fragment of Roman glass, Late Imperial period, 3-4th century CE. The patterns are presumably made using the canes-of-glass technique used today for Venetian ‘millefiori’ glass, a technique which was lost for many centuries and rediscovered in the 19th century. (If you are an expert and can put me right on any inaccuracies there, please do let me know!) #romanglass #roman #murano #venetian #metropolitanmuseum #fragments #vetroromano #historianadesigns #millefiori #imperialrome #romaimperiale…
