The Original Blue

Tear bottle

It is said, that this little bottle owes its name and form to those far away days when sailormen were very often absent for a very long period of time and when saying goodbye, the women left behind wept bitterly. Due to the lack of photography or any other means of communication, it is explicable that people still wanted a souvenir from home and thus the little tearbottle was created. The bottleneck was placed in the corner of the eye and in this way the tears could be captured. A precious little token was carried on far away voyages. If someone should be moved to tears, in this way one can express that person a real proof of ones sympathy.
