Although glass was manufactured in China as early as 2nd half of the 1st millennium BC and the locally developed technologies allowed the production of both opaque glass, resembling nephrite, and translucent glass, still the multicolor, made of translucent glass vessels originating from Mediterranean and Iranian workshops were highly valued among the Chinese elites, especially in the 1st half of the 1st millennium A.D. The Author discusses the finds of imported glass vessels on China territory in the context of the local glass production development, as well as problems related to glass distribution, its function and value.
