Bottle decorated with a portrait framed in a medallion on each side. The rest of the bottle is decorated with a gilded lattice with enameled dots in the intersections. The shoulder and the neck have a pseudo-Cufic inscription. Made at the end of the 15th century, is a Venetian-style glass piece. It could be a Majorcan production made by Venetian glassworkers documented in the isles, even though there was a ban on them, since it comes from a Palace in Majorca.
