Description
Glass has been prized for centuries. The fine qualities that the ancients enjoyed--the clarity, translucency, brilliance and malleability of glass, are the same ones that appeal to modern aesthetics. The passage of time has served ancient glass well, for the resultant added iridescent quality enhances it enigmatic appearance, giving it an exterior finish of radiant colors and textures. This delicate sprinkler bottle truly exemplifies both the excellent ancient artistry and added qualities that only time can bring. One can guess that the glassblower who created this vessel would be most pleased to see its subtle transformation today, just as we are pleased to behold its brilliant and timeless beauty. - (GF.0329)
