Scent Bottle. 1600-1800, Ottoman Empire, Turkey. This scent bottle, made of coloured glass and gilt, would have contained rose water that would have been used to sprinkle on the hands of guests. Little is actually known about Ottoman glass making before 1800 and so this complete bottle is a rare and beautiful example.
