    Faceted bottles, popular in the seventeenth century, regained favor in the nineteenth century. Square or rectangular bottles would have been made from joining four panels together. Both angular shapes, like this piece, and spherical forms—such as large, bulbous jars with straight necks—are typical of nineteenth-century porcelain. Although this period is better known for its cobalt-blue painted porcelain, undecorated white porcelain, often with a bluish gray tint to its glaze, was also produced.
