Record Type: concept
murrhine glass (glassware, <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Decorative glassware in which metal particles, precious stones, or other materials are embedded in the glass. Particularly used to describe ancient Roman glass. For a distinctive kind of ornamental glass, similar to millefiore, made by fusing together rods of variously colored glass and then cutting the fused rods into cross-sections, use "mosaic glass." Also, although the names are similar and sometimes confused, murrhine glass differs from “Murano glass."
