The first glass objects, mostly opaque, glass beads, were discovered in Egypt and made around 3500 BC. In the 3rd millennium BC, in the center of Mesopotamia, glass was used mainly for the production of glaze on ceramic pots and vases. It was then that the Phoenician merchants and sailors spread this new art across the Mediterranean countries. The oldest fragments of glass vases (scientific evidence for the production of hollow glass products), scientists date from the 16th century BC and were also found in Mesopotamia.

Glass is also boiled in Egypt, Greece, North Tyrol, and China. After 1500 BC, artisans of ancient Egypt developed a new way to make glass pots by immersing the rod form from rammed sand into melting glass and then rotating the mold so that the molten glass adjoins it. Still a soft layer of glass could be rolled out on a stone slab in order to smooth or decorate it. The earliest examples of the utensils of ancient Egypt are three vases bearing the name of the pharaoh Thutmose

III (1504 BC). Glassblowers brought them to Egypt after a successful military company in Asia. And the first instruction on how to make glass is contained in the scrolls from the library of the king of Assyria Ashurbanipal (7th century BC).
