rose water sprinkler
This elegant bottle of blown glass with a decoration of glass thread which is melted in, is one of the highlights from the work of the American Louis Comfort Tiffany. Around 1900, his work was internationally acclaimed. The bottle, with its bent neck, thickened base and mouth-like opening is a variation of Syrian bottles that were intended for sprinkling rose oil. This shape, the so-called rose water bottle, is derived from a snake with a curled body, ready to attack.
