The existence of almorratxas in Catalonia is documented from the 14th century, although it was not until the 18th century that their production became widespread. An almorratxa is a perforated glass bottle containing fragrant liquids that was used to perfume rooms in the home and in churches for certain liturgical celebrations. The typology of this example is that of the almorratxas conserved in Catalonia from the mid-18th century: a biconical recipient with four narrow vertical spouts attached by a cylindrical tube to a wide, frustum-shaped base. The tank and spouts are decorated with spiralling bands of latticinio
