The exquisite hue of this bottle is from iron oxide, also known as “purple oxide.”
Toward the end of the 18th century, multifaceted bottles like this one became popular with the growing demand from both the elites as well as the middle class. The dark-brown iron oxide pigment makes this eight-faceted bottle earthy, yet sophisticated.
