Catalogue Note

The shape of this bottle vase is comparable to a Safavid glass model in the Khalili collection (S. Goldstein, The Nasser D. Khalili Collection of Islamic Art: Glass, The Nour Foundation, Volume XV, 2005, p.299, no.320). It is said that it would have been used to collect a wife's tears while she waited for her husband to return from battle.
