• Glass imitations of metalwork during the Mamluk Period:
– large metal basins (fig. 9.2 and 9.3),
– candlesticks (fig. 20.5),
– round-bottomed bowls (fig. 11.1 and 11.2),
– handled vases (fig. 10.12).

• Parallels between enamelled glass and inlaid brass:
– heavy gilding as a visual parallel to their metallic models,
– decorative schema and motifs.

• Chronology of enamelled glass - comparative analysis with metalwork.

• Examination of enammelled glass objects and metalwork made for the European export market.

– bottle inscribed for Sultan al-Nāṣir Ṣālaḥ al-Dīn (fig. 9.1);
– mosque lamp for Amir Salār (fig. 9.5);
– vase made for Sultan al-Manṣūr Ṣālaḥ al-Dīn Muḥammad (fig. 10.12);
