Like most Qajar-period glass vessels, this sprinkler is monochromatic with an elegant profile. The surface of the rounded body is ornamented with eight, goffered applications of glass trails. This bulbous shape with a very high, narrow neck, was one of the most common forms in late-medieval Persian glass. The small tapered mouth was used to sprinkle fragrant water infused with rose petals and other perfumes.
