Tear Bottle: Hand Blown Amethyst
The Contemporary Tear Bottle Line is crafted by an American glass blower. Each flame-worked bottle is individually made and unique. This bottle has a grey amethyst swirl design on the outside of the bottle.
The history of the tear bottle is captivating and poignant. Tear bottles were prevalent in ancient Rome and Egypt, when mourners would collect their tears and bury them with loved ones to show honor and devotion.Tear bottles re-appeared during the 19th century Victorian era, when tears were collected in bottles with special stoppers; the tears evaporated and once gone, the mourning period ended, but the bottle remained as a token of eternal devotion.
Today, our tear bottles are offered as a loving expression of sympathy. Only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship are used in the production of this gift line which is proudly made in the USA.
Each tear bottle measures approximately 2". Each order includes the history of the tear bottle as well as a custom designed and printed enclosure card which reads, "as you comprehend this profound loss...let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens."
