About Catawiki's glass auction
The oldest known glass objects were produced in Syria, Mesopotamia or Ancient Egypt around 2500 BC. These objects were primarily ornamental and it is the decorative properties of glass that have intrigued successive civilisations, including the Romans. Historically, glass has been mixed with elements such as Lead, giving rise to Lead crystal glass, known for its attractive appearance and used to produce exquisite cut-glass items, such as drinking glasses, bottles, vases and chandeliers. Glass items are popular among collectors and enthusiasts today, due to their attractive appearance, design and historical value. Catawiki’s glass auctions feature a range of glass items, such as glass sculptures, ornamental vases by well-known manufacturers and figurines of animals or people. Our glass auctions not only include transparent glass objects, but also specially created glass in numerous colours or multi-coloured designs, produced by adding specific elements to the glass during the production process, achieving a beautiful and eye-catching finish.
