Once in a great while, we come along crystals so refined, unique, and refractive that we hold on to them until just the right bottle presents itself for partnering. When we find a bottle as unique, as interesting, we marry the two and allow Cross Bottle Guy stewards to adopt them to their own collection forever.
Then there are those rare times when we choose to keep the finished product for our private collection, absorbing it, appreciating it, and loving it, until we can bare to part. Having held onto this one for a number of months, we are now ready to release it into the collection of another.
Brilliantly refractive with amazing fire, these large, antique teardrop crystals were cut by hand, not machine, and polished individually more than 100 years ago. Mated with our small Russian octagonal prisms and bonded with heavy hand hewn solder patinated in a richly deep finish, the bottle art is remarkable, only made more unique and perfectly covetable by the bottle base.
Manufactured by the Pyrex Company, this antique Nitric Acid bottle stored the colorless mineral acid for half-a-century before we took possession and quickly introduced the two. Stunningly clear, the frosted label with red lettering is almost romantic, although clearly warning against it's once explosive contents.
This rare, antique, hand-made beauty, once part of our personal, private collection can now be a part of yours.
