A Very Rare Islamic Glass Distillation Or Alembic Vessel, Iran 10th-11th Century:
A very rare Islamic glass distillation or alembic vessel, Iran 10th-11th century. Almost certainly for medical use this is an extraordinary survival and it is in excellent condition. The piece has an excellent provenance. My friend bought it from large and important collection of glass dating from antiquity to the 18th century which was dispersed at Gorringes sale House in Lewes a few years ago.
123mm in length
