The Kuttrolf bottle was produced from the 14th century onwards. It was mainly popular in Germany in the 14th to 16th century. The Kuttrolf bottle is characterised by several, often slightly twisted glass tubes.
Lantern with an Eastern-looking decoration. It bears some resemblance to napkin work consisting of four-petalled flowers arranged diagonally. It is common on Chinese porcelain from the later 17th century and the 18th century. Local pottery producers were inspired by such decorations during that period. They are still the source of inspiration for contemporary decoration patterns.
The lantern creates a cozy environment with a burning tea candle, which projects the pattern onto the walls.
This candle holder is a reference to the bossed beaker. These are glass beakers that occur in late 16th-century or 17th-century archaeological contexts. The wall of the bossed beaker is decorated with a relief pattern in the form of drops, tears, diamonds, warts or … bosses. Just like with this candle holder.
