Laguna Agate Scent Bottle
By Thomas Harth Ames
Laguna, Mexico

This beautiful and functional perfume bottle is carved from a large piece of highly sought-after Laguna agate from Mexico. It is distinguished by striking patterns, the concentric banding and "eyes" within the agate and, when held to the light, there are visible patches of translucency. Laguna agates are beloved for their subtle lavender, heather, plum and reddish-brown hues. This particular piece is reflective of Ames' work in that it is free-form and gives a "windblown" appearance. The finial is removable and has a Montana agate dipper which is inserted into the body of the scent bottle. Height 5 1/2 in
