Bloodwood/Blackwood Perfume Atomizer

[PB29] (Size: 15/8"D x 5 1/2"H)
This perfume atomizer bottle is made of African Blackwood for the body with a top and finial of bloodwood. The cap is a modified onion dome shape. There is a pattern of incised crosses cut through to a bloodwood liner in the bands at the base and waist of the piece. A fluted blackwood skirt serves as the transition from the dome to the finial. The body is ornamented with a  1/8" reeding bit to create a pattern that looks like stacked bamboo. A removeable perfume atomizer bottle is contained in the base.
