As this bottle was used for Rosewater, it is possible that it may have been used in a princely household rather than a pharmacy.
The present bottle is exceptional both for its size and the variety of the decorative elements. For an armorial bottle-vase of the same form with simpler a candeliere decoration, see Carmen Ravanelli Guidotti, La Donazione Angiolo Fanfani, ceramiche dal Medioevo al XX secolo, Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche, Faenza, Catalogue, Ravenna, 1990, p. 168, fig. 96e.
