Blackwood "Bamboo-Twist" Perfume Bottle

[PB23] (Size: 1 3/8"D x 5 3/8"H)
This perfume bottle is made entirely of African Blackwood save for the top finial which is boxwood. The base is cut with the 1/8" reeding bit in a spiral pattern resembling bamboo. The base relates to the waistband sharing a pattern of incised cross designs. A fluted skirt leads from the dome into the finial. The dome and blackwood finial shaping owes its inspiration to 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.
