Most of these glass vessels were made in Jerusalem. Those made of dark purple glass were decorated with embedded white trails using a technique called marvering. Sprinklers were a common type of glass vessel in Jerusalem, as they were used for sprinkling rose water on graves and during a special ceremony held in the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
