Loss of Mother

Victorian Tear Bottle & FREE Matching Filigree Tray
Sympathy Gift, Memorial Gift, Remembrance Gift

Elaborate silver flowers and leaves wrap around this petite cobalt blue tear bottle. Authentic tear bottles by Timeless TraditionsTM are unique and poignant, and steeped in ancient giving traditions. During Roman times mourners captured their tears and buried them with loved ones in a show of affection and respect. While tear bottles have endured for nearly 3,000 years, they reappeared in the 19th century Victorian era in the form of beautiful small bottles, highly decorated with silver and pewter. Bereavement would end when the tears had evaporated but the bottle remained as a token of eternal devotion. Today tear bottles can be used for real tears but are most often given as symbolic gifts to express shared feelings of love, sympathy and remembrance. Approximately 2" high. Includes a brochure that outlines the history of the tear bottle, as well as a story card. The story card reads: "As you comprehend this profound loss let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens." Handblown glass. Arrives in organza gift bag. Made in USA. SKU: TT-2043 with matching silver filigree tray
