Commemorative Contemporary Tear Bottle
This limited edition Commemorative Contemporary Tear Bottle™ was commissioned in memory of the events of September 11, 2001 and to honor those serving in the U.S. military. Each bottle is individually hand-made and features splashes of blue and red glass in the base.
A 24K gold luster surrounds the rim and cap and a white mother-of-pearl corundum cabochon crowns the cap. This American-made glass tear bottle is part of our contemporary style and is a work of art. Each bottle is accompanied by a hand carved natural cork stopper and certificate of authenticity. Variations in color, paint and shape are characteristics of the hand made nature and are not to be considered defects.
Optional matching displays available include a 2" mirror tray.
The tear bottle tradition has historically been a mourning tradition. They symbolize an intensely personal gift in remembrance of a loved one. Tear bottles were fairly common in Roman times, when mourners filled small glass vials or bottles with tears and placed them in burial tombs as symbols of love and respect.
