19th C Sterling Silver Filigree Coral Rose Water Sprinkler, Middle Eastern Islam

We are offering...
A beautiful 19th C sterling rose water sprinkler from the middle east, believed to be from around the 1890s. The islamic antique is repoussé with floral motifs and filigree patterns. The top of the middle eastern piece is decorated with coral beads and sterling flowers. The neck of the sprinkle unscrews completely to fill the main basin with rose water.
Traditionally used across Islamic culture, rosewater is made from steeping rosewater petals in water. It’s called the Flower of Prophet Muhammad because its pleasant smell reminds people of the prophet Muhammad. Rosewater is often used in religious ceremonies. It is used during mourning ceremonies at mosques to relax and calm grieving people, as wells as weddings. Rosewater is also used to sprinkle into the palm of an entering guest to say “welcome” to our home.
