Antique Victorian Glass Tear Catcher Lachrymatory Bottle
A stunning antique Victorian gilded and enamelled glass lachrymatory bottle or “tear catcher”.
The story goes that Victorians would collect their tears of sorrow in a “tear catcher” and use them as a measure of grieving time. Once the tears cried into them had evaporated, the mourning period was over.
This one is in superb condition, with beautiful enamel work all over. No chips or cracks and ready to be filled with your tears...of joy, I hope...!
