Cleopatra's Bottle

A bit of Egyptian Revivalism is at play with this palm leaf stoppered bottle from Barbini, circa 1950. We have never seen this particular design from the venerable Murano factory - so rare and unique - that we believe that it was likely a special custom order or a limited edition.  The off-white glass is laden with gobs of gold and accented with a salmon colored ring at the base and topped with ball detail on the stopper. Fantastic at 25.5 inches.
