Description
The heavily weighted base was designed for stability, to protect the precious fragrance within from spilling. Alas, time has stolen the ancient perfume by other tricks, even as the glass stood solidly through the ages. As if to compensate, however, the vessel has acquired a peacock iridescence as rare and beautiful as anything it might once have held. - (G.0169)
