Measurements: 7.2 cm – height, 3.6 cm – width


Description: A small green glass bottle, displaying some silvery iridescence. From the short conical body a short tubular neck widens slightly to its opening. The base is slightly concave underneath. The bottle features trailing decoration, achieved by winding molten glass threads onto the body of the hot vessel in a spiral. The irregular space between individual lines affirms that this glasswork is uniquely handmade.
