There is no doubt that the glass perfume bottle was quite extravagant at that time, just like the liquid in the bottle. However, perfume is placed in the container, down is nothing new. Many early containers were made of rough clay. For the precious liquid contained inside, this vessel appears to be too permeable. Later, bottles of alabaster, onyx and porphyry were developed.
