Olivewood/Blackwood Perfume Atomizer

[PB31] (Size: 1 5/8"D x 6 1/4"H)
This perfume atomizer bottle is made of African Blackwood for the body with a top of Olivewood and boxwood finiall. The cap is an onion dome shape. There is a pattern of incised crosses cut through to a boxwood 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 in an alternating bricklay pattern to create an effect that looks like stacked bamboo. A removeable perfume atomizer bottle is contained in the base. See detail.
