Tall Islamic Green Glass Flask - 11th C., ex-Bonhams

Lot 0034 Details

Description
Islamic world, Lebanon, ca. 11th century CE. This is a beautiful green glass sprinkler bottle with a bulbous blown body decorated by fine waves, giving its body a melon like appearance. It has a long, thin, cylindrical spout, designed to prevent evaporation of the precious liquids kept inside -- probably a perfume. The body has a very slight, shimmering iridescence that flares purple when looked at from certain angles. Size: 3.4" W x 5.2" H (8.6 cm x 13.2 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Lebanese collector, exported from Lebanon in the 1970s, Ex-Bonhams London, Sale 13686, Antiquities, Lot No 376.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.
