Roman alabaster perfume bottles like this were used all over the Roman Empire between the 1st and 3rd century AD. Perfume bottles (balsamaria & unguentaria) were made of alabaster for centuries before they were made of glass. This replica has been made after an original excavated in the Roman city of Pompeii. This bottle is made of alabaster, just like the original, and is completely functional. The advantage of alabaster is that it is stronger and more sturdy than glass. When you hold this bottle against the light, you will see the beautiful natural structure of the stone. Details
