Ginkgo Perfume Bottle
The Ginkgo, also know at the maidenhair tree is the oldest existing tree species in the world and considered a living fossil. Its fan-shaped leaves are found in fossil records that date back to the time of the dinosaurs. As such an enduring species it has become a symbol for strength and longevity as well as long being considered a symbol of hope and peace in its native land of China. All these lovely characteristics are captured in a keepsake perfume bottle, hand made by Daum giving each piece a uniqueness in keeping with its source inspiration of nature.
With a history dating back to 1878, Daum is a world-renowned glass maker. All pieces are still handmade in and around the area of the founding studio in Nancy, France. Currently, Daum is the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâte de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, an ancient technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mould and then fused in a kiln. The artisans at Daum are able to capture both fine details and subtle contouring, and each glass sculpture will radiate with light and color, making it a beautiful addition to any home, and the perfect gift.
