Ancient glass from Bohemia
In ancient times, simple shapes were made which were mostly bottles, flacons and carafes, and less often, bowls and goblets. Most of the shapes were imitated from ceramics. The glass itself was very expensive and represented the wealth of its owner. Bottles and flacons were used for perfumed oils, perfumes, etc. while bowls were used to decorate the tables and the small goblets were used to drink from.
