Description

This Orient 499–designed blown glass decanter provides a modern interpretation of a globular glass bottle (19th century) in The Met collection. Though attributed to Qajar-period Iran, the vessel’s curvaceous silhouette echoes older pieces from the early Islamic period in Egypt and Syria, exemplifying one of the many timeless forms that unite Islamic art.

Lebanese brand Orient 499 proves that luxury can be sustainable and sustainability can be luxurious. Founded in 2006 by Frank Luca and Aida Kawas, Orient 499 employs a fleet of Lebanese artisans—from woodworkers to embroiderers, glassmakers to couturiers—to create home decor, clothing, and accessories that are equal parts gorgeous, ethical, and “perfectly imperfect.” In promoting the art of handcrafting, Orient 499 is helping to preserve precious Lebanese design traditions.

This item was created for the Heirloom Project, led by designer Madeline Weinrib. The initiative celebrates the 10th anniversary of The Met’s reimagined Islamic Wing by seeking engagement with global artisans who pursue historic techniques and design principles. The Heirloom Project commemorates The Met’s Islamic art collection, supports the Museum, and endeavors to preserve traditional craftsmanship.
