A flamboyant glass objet like this striking mouth-blown scent bottle might well have graced the vanity of a Venetian nobleman’s wife. An unusual pairing of two glass traditions, the mosaic relief of the hand-painted crystal bottle is the work of Venetian glassmakers. The screw-on glass flame top is handmade on the Venetian island of Murano. This Crystal Perfume Bottle with Murano Flame Stopper comes with a certificate of authenticity. Each will vary slightly. 4"h. x 1.5"dia.
The unrivaled masters of artistry and innovation, Venetian glass artisans have plied their craft for 700 years. This magnificent collection recalls the many examples of historic and contemporary Murano glass in the extraordinary glass collections of our National Museum of American History.
