Beykoz glassware began to be produced at glass workshops in Beykoz during the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Selim III (A.D. 1789-1807). This glassware, made of both opaline and transparent glass, is characterized by both cut and painted designs in either polychrome or gold. In this paper the focus will be on the history and archaeology of Beykoz glass production and its samples.
