Enigma Variations Collection: A Victorian, Silver-Topped, Smelling Salts Crystal Bottle with 2 Vintage Blue Butterflies in a Display Dome
The ancient greeks believed that a new human soul was born every time an adult butterfly emerged from its cocoon.
A beautiful cut crystal smelling salts bottle, with a silver rim, echoes the shape of the base, adorned with 2 blue vintage butterflies. This miniature world is presented in a glass dome with a base created from a carved Victorian table leg.
Dimensions: height 29cm x diameter 16cm
We are passionate about nurturing the planet, our environment and all wildlife and therefore only endorse ethical and sustainable practices.
The insects we use are source are from unwanted vintage collections.
Unexpected juxtapositions: where antique artefacts have a poetic dialogue with the natural.
Due to the fragility of the glass dome and its contents we have reluctantly decided not to offer a delivery service on this creation. Please purchase and arrange collection with the gallery. Thank you.
