[PB20] (Size: 1 3/8"D
x 4 1/4"H)
This perfume bottle is made of African Blackwood for the base with Olivewood cap shaped as an onion-dome, or kokoshnik, with African Blackwood finial with pernambuco kokoshnik top finial. The base is cut with the 1/8" reeding bit in a stacked pattern resembling bamboo. The base relates to the waistband sharing a dentil molding pattern. The Oriental influences on this piece are quite strong, with a finial shape mirroring the bulbous finials such as are found on the minarets of the Taj Mahal. An improved O-ring coupler securely holds the glass bottle liner in the base, yet allows for easy removal to fill with fragrance.
