Description

Crafted in white opaline glass, the bottles take a bulbous undulating form, requiring a great deal of skill from the maker to execute. Each bottle has been hand decorated with parcel gilt detailing to the main white bodies with depictions of scrolling vines and grapes, and concentric rings in blue and gold to the shoulders and necks. The bottles are topped by stoppers that have been similarly decorated.
