Fragment of a Dish of Polychrome Mosaic Glass

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 120

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.
