Maybe you are interested in the long past history of your nation. But possibly the things around you will be ignored always as they usually appear in your vision. For the things easily to be available, people are used to its existence so it’s impossible to request a person to cherish it like it’s a diamond. To mention the diamond, sometimes the glass is a little like it. Both are transparent. Let’s come to the topic. The door of glass history is open for you.
95 % of the perfume bottle production is made of glass today, surely because the raw material to get glass bottles is cheaper than the metal as aluminium although fragility is the major disadvantage of glass. The glass is attractive due to its diversity of shapes and transparency with high gloss especially after being polished. Also glass is able to be recycled. Glass containers are easily mass-produced using high-temperature furnaces and molding machines. The bottles made of glass that can afford the high protective effect are durable& chemical-resistant which can be kept highly sanitary therefore ideally for the storage of solid and liquid.
Perfume bottles, the vessels made to hold the scent. Although early bottles were made from such materials as gourds and animal skins, the glass eventually became the major material employed. The earliest example is Egyptian which dates to around 1500 BC. So the history of glass is about 3500 years. The Egyptians used scents lavishly, especially in religious rites. At that time, people are crazy for such a kind of water- perfume. As a result, when they invented the glass, it was largely used for perfume vessels. The fashion for perfume spread to Greece, where containers, most often terra-cotta or glass, were made in a variety of shapes and forms such as sandalled feet, birds, animals, and human heads. The Romans, who thought perfumes were aphrodisiacs, made the glass to flourish. They used not only the molded glass bottles but also the blown glass after its invention at the end of the 1st century BC by Syrian glassmakers. The fashion for perfume declined somewhat with the beginning of Christianity, coinciding with the deterioration of glassmaking.
By 200 BC glassblowing was practiced in China, Persia (modern Iran), and Egypt. Except for making the finest and most costly decorative bottles, hand methods were eventually replaced by the processes employing the metal moulds and automatic equipments as the continuous manufacture of bottles was introduced commercially in 1903.
The Egyptians produced glass bottles by covering silica paste cores with molten glass and digging out the core after the bottle hardened. After developing of many centuries, now the main raw materials of producing glass bottle are silica sand, limestone, feldspar etc. In addition, the white material and the high white material are widely used in perfume bottles. The high white material mainly for the niche or luxury perfume brand can increase the transparency of bottles, highlighting the crystal clarity of the bottle.
After being acquainted with the details of glass development history, will you add more love to your favorite perfume? Is such an acquaintance beautiful to you?
