Description
When the fall of Rome had plunged Europe into darkness, a world of culture and light flourished under Islam in the East. This charming vessel, a product of that age, was perhaps made to contain a perfume as delicate as its colored glass bottle. If we close our eyes, we can perhaps detect its melancholy scent, the fragrance of vanished roses blooming in a moonlit garden. - (G.0133A)
