Lavender spikes sit above a collection of 5 soft lavender roses, 3 coral bells, 3 milky starflowers and 5 copper green leaves. All nestled in a vintage bottle I purchased from a local market. The bottle was excavated from Bunbury Queens Gardens and is a beautiful squared off shape and a slight violet tinge not really evident in the photos. I suspect this bottle may develop further lavender tinge with more exposure to the sunlight as these bottles often do from this era. It's a quirk of chemistry enjoyed as a rare treat these days that this glass was once perfectly clear but turns this colour over time. There is a slight crack in one corner of this one but it's really not large and just a sign of it's story.
Measurements are 118mm high from tip of lavender spike. Bottle measures 75mm high and 36mm square in the body.

Handle with care, this item is made of glass and may break on impact with hard surfaces.

Hand made in my Busselton studio in the Margaret River Region of South Western Australia.
