This is a slender clear glass perfume bottle which is thought to have been disposable as it would have only contained a small quantity of fluid. These bottles have also been described as lachrymatory bottles or “tear catchers” for use during mourning, but this purpose has probably been debunked. This example is of clear glass, long and slender, with a cork stopper. It is delightfully decorated with blue and white enamel and is utterly charming. There is residual staining on the interior from prior contents and a possible flaw in the glass near the neck, but if this is a crack it does not go through to the surface. The condition otherwise is very good for age. These fascinating little items can be collected in their own right or added to a collection of perfume bottles.
Total length 6.6 ins (18.8cm); diameter 0.5 ins (1.2cm). Weight 68 grams.
Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $22.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
