Among the glass fragments found at the site of Malqata during the Museum's excavations from 1910-1912 were nine pieces of mosaic glass that probably come from the same dish (11.215.724–.732). The dish was made in a mold and, judging from a rim fragment (11.215.727) and a base fragment (11.215.729), it was about 15 cm (5 7/8 in) in diameter.
