JGS 15
The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, 1973, p. 12-30

[701, 1100]
• Glass manufacture: although no indisputable evidence of glass manufacture has been found at Fusṭāṭ, the sheer quantity of glass finds leaves no doubt to the existence of a local industry.

• Examples of glass objects found in Fusṭāṭ:
– shallow bowl with outsplayed pedestal foot (fig. 1 and 2);
– glass weight of the Caliph al-Mahdī (A.D. 775-785);
– rectangular bottle with vertical ribbings - mould-blown (fig. 9 and 10);
– bowls with vertical or spiral ribbings - mould-blown (fig. 13-15);
– lamps: conical; with stem (fig. 18 and 19); with handles and foot (fig. 20 and 21);
– engraved plate: stylized floral and geometric motifs (fig. 26 and 27);
– relief-cut ewer, with relief inscription: barakah (”blessing”) (fig. 30 and 31);
– relief-cut bowl: series of roundels each containing a bird motif (fig. 33-35);
– lustre-painted bowl with an inscription (fig. 40-42): Bismillāh ar-raḥmān [ar-rahīm mimmā ʾama]ra ʿAbd as-Samad b. ʿAlī ʿaṣlaḥahu Allāh wa aʿzza naṣrahu (”In the name of God the clement the merciful; that which was ordered by ʿAbd as-Samad b. ʿAlī – my God grant him health and make glorious his victory”).
