Ancient Glass Blog of The Allaire Collection

We started collecting glass some 20 years ago buying our first drinking glass with a tall slender drawn stem and funnel shaped bowl dating to the late 17th century. (Stem 4 mm. h = 17.3 cm. weight 46 gr.
In Dutch, pijpensteeltje)

About 5 years later we also started collecting Roman glass buying a small ribbed jar. We were asked to participate in the Roman glass exhibition in 2011 with some objects. (Glass from private collections, Thermenmuseum Heerlen, Nl). Our main field of interest remains to be Venetian and Façon de Venise glass. The most intriguing aspect of collecting glass is to put the objects in the historical context.

Below are some examples from our collection divided into two groups ROMAN, FAÇON de VENISE and VENETIAN:
