Verdigris Contemporary Tear Bottle
This tear bottle has beautiful green colored glass that is melded with a reddish-brown glass base. The cap is a Burnt Red Tiger Eye cabochon stone with a hand-carved cork stopper. This design is slightly more slender than the other tear bottles and has a shape that is very similar to some of the tear bottles of ancient days.Variations in color, paint and shape are characteristics of the hand made nature and are not to be considered defects.
The Verdigris tear bottle comes with a matching 3-1/2" H x 1-3/4" mini dome. A matching 2" mirror tray is also available for purchase.
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.
