[1226, 1271]
• Glass from the Teutonic castle of Montfort:

– window glass, found in a chapel: some of them painted (French-style stained glass window);
– vessel glass: drinking vessels (gilded and enamelled; pruned beakers), bottles (long, narrow neck), lighting devices (gilded and enamelled hanging lamps with handles, one of which contains an Arabic inscription).

In the 13th century, the local glass industry consisted of at least one major supplier of raw glass (at Tyre) and a number of small workshops, where vessel glass of “European” and “Islamic” types, as well as window glass was made (Somelaria was one such workshop).
