This paper presents the LBA core-formed glass vessels from Aššur which are part of the collection of the Vorderasiatisches Museum Berlin. Most of these pieces are presented here for the first time. One of the major objectives was to ascribe the vessels and fragments to their original find contexts, to discuss their function, and to make assumptions on their relevance. A detailed typological and chronological discussion of the objects from Aššur is provided; the vessels and fragments are further compared with representatives from other LBA sites in order to provide indications about the duration of the LBA core-formed glass production in general.
