Such an iconic mid-century modern Italian glazed ceramic decanter/bottle in the shape of a Tibeto-Burman womans bust. The bust is designed to resemble the women of the Kayan tribe, who are well known for wearing brass coil rings around the neck, in most cases permanently, as a beauty/marriage tradition. The figure has an upswept hairstyle, stylized facial features, an elongated neck, and brass coil teardrop dangle earrings. The bust is further accented with blue and gold accents on the hair, and gilding around the neck coils. The top of the women's head has a small bottle mouth opening, so the bottle can be functional, but the original cork/stopper has been lost over the years. There is some wear to portions of the gilding, but the ceramic is intact and in overall great vintage condition. The bottom of the bottle has been hallmarked 'Porcellane Canova Padova-Italy' for authenticity.
