Glass Bottle with Faceted Decoration

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 453

The shape of this bottle seems to have been popular in glass as well as metal and glazed pottery. Though it is hard to say which medium gave way to the other, this particular faceted variety with horizontal grooves marking the transitions between the different decorative sections of the vessel has especially close parallels in metal.
