Throughout the Islamic world, it is a tradition to greet road-weary travelers and guests with a refreshing sprinkle of rosewater or orange blossom water. This decorative Turkish fig shaped brass bottle was made for this purpose, although I have seen people buy them for use as incense burners. This piece is unusual as it has detachable fig leaves for it's design element. Standing 7 1/2" tall and measuring 3" across, this unique piece is filled with astounding charm. The bottle weighs 6 ounces before packing.
