[1250, 1500]
• Examining the Islamic presence in China:
– merchant communities (since 8th century);
– immigrants (especially 13th century).

• Sources of imported Islamic glass objects - contacts between China and Muslim states:
– trade,
– voyages,
– pilgrimage souvenirs,
– diplomatic gifts,
– “tribute missions”,
– Ottoman-inspired missionaries (19th century).

• Written evidence:
– “Ming Shi-lu”- the History of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644),
– Huang Shengzeng, “A Catalogue of Western Ocean Tribute to Court” (1520).

• Possible reasons for the departure of Islamic glass from China to Europe and America at the end of the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century:
– pauperisation of China,
– natural disasters,
– civil war.

• Examples of Middle Eastern gilded and enamelled glass vessels said to have come from China:
– bottles (fig. 20.1; 20.3; 20.4; 20.6; 20.7; 21.6),
– stem bowls (fig. 20.2; 20.8),
– bowls (fig. 11.1; 11,2; 21.4),
– vase (fig. 21.5),
– beaker (fig. 12.2),
– candlestick with an inscription (fig. 20.5).
