Over 14" of antique French crystal makes up the staggering and eye-catching beauty of this bottle. A dear, dear friend of ours recently took an enviable five week vacation through Europe. Before she left, I gave her money and a list of things to look for. What she brought back did not disappoint! 

These HUGE antique chandelier crystals were found at the Paris Flea Market. She was lucky enough to find 5 that were from the same chandelier. Heavy and gorgeous, they are hand-cut and polished, and needed a good cleaning - so we assume they must have been part of a candlelier. Thoughtfully accented by our antique rosettes (also from French chandeliers) and our work horse hand-polished and bohemian fired teardrops and octagonals, the overall massive cross needed a large and heavy bottle counter part. 

This lovely aqua apothecary bottle was used for chemical storage in a laboratory in Massachusetts. It is accented by two of our solder collars and graced by an antique wood bead rosary.

Forever married to a thick glass, antique pill bottle in an iridescent aqua, banded by a solder collar and finished in our signature mercerized rust patina, this little beauty should be a delightful addition to any collection. 

May she watch over you, and yours, bringing you peace and joy forever.
