Tear bottles reappeared during the Victorian period of the 19th Century, when those mourning the loss of loved ones would collect their tears in bottles with special stoppers that would allow the tears to evaporate. When the tears had evaporated, the mourning period would end. Their collected tears would show the men how much they were adored and missed. Our relics are ALWAYS guaranteed authentic!
