What light through yonder window breaks
Wake up each morning with a glass of water from this sturdy, glass, bedside carafe, hand painted in intricate detail with a design inspired by the famous balcony scene from Shakespeare's tragic romance play, Romeo and Juliet.
The front of the carafe depicts Juliet, leaning down from her balcony to her young beau, Romeo. They are surrounded by rose vines that trail across the whole piece, including the accompanying glass and encircle the two quotes from the play, painted in cursive, gold script.
This sturdy, pressed-glass, bedside carafe holds up to 1000ml and has a small (230ml) glass that fits inside the neck of the carafe, forming a seal to keep your water fresh overnight.
Each bedside carafe comes boxed in the style depicted, with a handwritten, swing tag that can be personalised. Please leave a note with details if you would like to add a name or short message to the tag.
I've always been in love with the story of Romeo and Juliet. My favourite ballet is Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet and the score from that was the first cassette (yes I'm that old) that I ever owned. A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to see the English National Ballet perform it at the Southbank Centre and despite knowing the story inside out, I still cried with frustration at the tragedy of the ending.
