DECANTER

Glass production or the art of glassmaking is a popular type of craft of the Tajik people. It is especially well known about the methods of glass processing in ancient Khatlon by forming, casting, smelting and blowing. Glasses, bowls, decanters, various vessels for storing perfumes and medicines, bracelets, necklaces and other products were made of glass.

Artisans from Khatlon produced glass of green, white, black, blue, yellow, and red shades (colors). A large number of samples of crystal, glass and other products of Tajik artisans are stored in the fund of the National Museum (NMT). In this vein, the specialists of the NMT restoration and conservation department restored a multicolored (purple) decanter of the tenth century, which is now on display at the NMT.
