Ewer (Iran), 17th–18th century

This is a Ewer. It is dated 17th–18th century and we acquired it in 1919. Its medium is blown glass, applied blown glass decoration. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Traditionally called a "rosewater sprinkler," this ewer was part of a gift of Iranian glass from Rodman Wanamaker. It represents the type of antique objects sold in the family's department stores in Philadelphia and New York from the late 19th to early 20th century, while also functioning as inspiration for the contemporary art glass and pottery sold by the firm.

This object was donated by Rodman Wanamaker. It is credited Gift of Rodman Wanamaker.
