Rosewood Spiral Chain Perfume Bottle

[PB19] (Size: 1 3/8"D x 4 1/4"H)
This perfume bottle is made of Brazilian rosewood for the base with African Blackwood trim rings, an Algerian pipe briar dome and Amboyna burl top finial. The base is cut with the spiral apparatus utilizing crossing cuts to create a spiral chain effect wrapping around the piece. The base is inlaid with blackwood which shows through the cut-out cross designs around the foot. The waist is cul with a flared dentil molding that flows into the briar dome. A fluted blackwood skirt serves as the transition from the dome to the finial. The color and textures of this piece are very rich and the briar dome is highly burled. The design has a definite Middle-Eastern feel to it. An improved O-ring coupler securely holds the glass bottle liner in the base, yet allows for easy removal to fill with fragrance.
