During the archeological research on the churchyard in Góra Świętej Małgorzaty, a collection of almost 400 glass relics was found. It has been discovered from layers dated back to the period between the seventeenth and the mid-nineteenth centuries. The collection was catalogued and analyzed and the conclusions are a basis for this article. Glass relics are divided into 4 categories. The first is table glass, mostly different types of drinking dishes. Most of them are various cups, but it is difficult to define how they were used. The second category are bottles produced manually or mechanically. The third group are panes of glass. Most of them were window glass panes that were kept in frames with lead and wooden joints. A very interesting discovery are glass panes recovered from a crypt. Probably, it was part of a coffin. It has some traces of colour. The artefact is dated back to the first half of the nineteenth century. This kind of artefacts represents a very rare discovery on the Polish land in the modern era.
