This swan neck bottle c. 1900 is in excellent condition decorated with gold gilt and flowers. The bottle glass is a beautiful sea blue. The artisan’s pontil exists and is rough to the touch.
Rose Water Sprinklers have been popular in much of the Middle East for several hundreds of years – the form dates back to at least the 10th century. Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) was inspired by the traditional rosewater sprinklers of Persia and other countries then associated with the Orient. Rosewater was used for centuries in the Middle East in food preparation as well as for cosmetic and medicinal purposes, and the containers became works of art themselves.
Measures approximately 12.75” tall.
Truly a rare antique treasure!
