In Japanese design, the hexagon is derived from the pattern of shapes on a tortoise shell and represents longevity. Kikkō hanabishi, a textile pattern where a flower is placed in the center of each hexagon, is seen as particularly auspicious. This artisan hexagon perfume bottle presents that same pattern – a flower at the center of a hexagon – when viewed from the top. The signs could not be more clear: This delicately chased bottle wishes you luxury and long life!
This is a sterling silver (.950) hexagon perfume bottle, created in Japan. The bottle is hexagonal (six-sided) with fine abstract etched leaves on each side. The lid is a graceful abstract of flower petals. This tiny flask measures 47mm tall and 20mm wide from point to point. It weighs 12.6 grams overall. Our fine collectibles are polished by hand; No solvents or corrosive dips are used.
