The comparisons of the locations of the northern glasshouses to the distribution of beech pollen in AD 1000 is discussed by Newton (1985b). The northern forest glassmakers, conditioned by their raw materials, produced mainly green and brown glass, and decorated it with furnace-wrought embellishments of simple rib moulding, applied trails and blobs, mostly in the same colour glass as the body of the vessel itself. The vessels fall into several categories: simple palm cups without handles, bag beakers, cone cups up to 265 mm in height and tapering to a pointed base, a variety of squat pots and bottles, and claw beakers (Ger.

These richly coloured vessels are almost opaque, due as much to the desire to imitate semi-precious stones in glass as to the technological limitations.
