This antique, Scandinavian, hand blown glass flask bottle features a complex scene with two porcelain doll weavers working on a two-tier wooden loom scaffolding. This is a charming interpretation of the ship-in-a-bottle tradition and is often called a whimsey or whimsy bottle because it has no real purpose, other than to pass the time. This folk art tradition originated in Germany and Slavic countries in the 18th century and incorporated a wide variety of subjects.
