Millennia ago, mourners in ancient cultures filled small glass vials or cups with tears and placed them in burial tombs as symbols of love and respect. The prominence of tear keepers surged again during the Victorian Age. After Prince Albert died, Queen Victoria's very public mourning prompted a new popularity in mourning jewelry and accoutrements - tear keepers among them.

Those mourning the loss of loved ones gathered their tears in ornately adorned bottles, and unique stoppers allowed the tears to gradually evaporate. When the tears were completely gone, the mourning period was over. Our vintage Persephone Tear Keeper Bottle was lovingly recreated from an antique original.
  • 4¾ x 1½".
  • Glass & brass.
  • Packed in black velvet gift box.
  • VTC Exclusive.
