Roman Baby's Feeding Bottle

I love this Baby Bottle, such a work of art as well as being functional. Some baby bottles in Roman times were in the shape of animals, and had a rattle included in the design, that way they doubled as a toy as well as a feeder. I think this one is more ornamental, it is so beautiful. Look at the closeup photos below.

The decoration looks like icing on a cake

Such beautiful work

Almost like a sculpture

A work of Art and probably a work of Love
