19th cent. red glass medicine bottle converted to Rosewater sprinkler with silver ornaments

Rosewater sprinkler
  • Description

 

Silversmith work of Oman was highly rated internationally around 1920. This is confirmed by the fact that empty Dimple Whiskey bottles were sent to Oman to be decorated with silver fittings. It is tempting to assume this rosewater sprinkler was also decorated in Oman. However the silver-work in this case is of mediocre quality.
