Description
Where once this delicate vessel was filled with rare fragrance, today it contains only the seductive perfume of mystery. Who held it all those centuries ago when the classical world was in full bloom? Did that person admire its fragile beauty without for a moment imagining that the glass would survive long after the Roman Empire had vanished? When we also are drawn to the lovely shape and colors of this flask, we are linked directly to that ancient life. - (GF.0111)
