A lacrimal, also known as a tear bottle, is used to catch the tears of the mourning. During the Victorian period of the 19th century, those who were mourning would collect their tears in the bottle with special stoppers that allowed the tears to evaporate. When the tears evaporated, the mourning period would end.
