Glaser Collection of South Arabian Antiquities


One of the most important late 19th century travelers to Yemen was the Austrian Eduard Glaser, who commented on life in the late Ottoman era and collected South Arabian inscriptions and antiquities. His work is archived in several places in Vienna. In the Kunsthistorische Museum there is a small collection of South Arabian art that he collected. I visited this collection in 2018 and provide several pictures of what can be seen.
