(Size: 1 1/4"D x 4 3/8"H)
This perfume bottle is made of Mountain Mahogany from the western mountains of the US for the body with African Blackwood finial and boxwood top finial in the familiar onion shape. The base is cut with a 1/8" reeding bit in a bricklay pattern simulating the joints of bamboo. A fluted blackwood skirt serves as the transition from the dome to the finial. The rich, honey-toned Mountain Mahogany is quite fine-grained and takes a high polish from the cutter producing a finished surface quality that is surprisingly comparable to fine African Blackwood. An improved O-ring coupler securely holds the glass bottle liner in the base, yet allows for easy removal to fill with fragrance.
