*Important:
Beautiful example of an opaline piece from the French Restoration Period.
This apple-shaped ("Pomiforme") bottle was manufactured between 1820 and 1830.
In general, these bottles, especially in combination with bronze,
are attributed to the French glass factory Le Creusot".

Although the bottle has a fairly simplistic appearance, it is made using a certain technology.
The glass itself is hand blown, and made of thin soapy
Opal crystal, also called "bulle de savon".

Both the bottle and the cap have a bronze fire-gilded decoration.
The bronze frame of the bottle is serrated (moleté).
The bronze of the cap is chiselled (ciselé) and printed (estampé).
