This stunning blown perfume bottle arrived today, I bought with a ‘BIN’ very cheaply and normally I would say!... unfortunately it has a chip to the rim and missing it’s stopper but!... I’m not going to with this one!
I bought it knowing about the chip and the reason why I got it so cheaply but! it is the most beautiful bottle so! I don’t think at all….”unfortunately!”
There is so much going on! on this entirely hand decorated bottle, it has been … ruby cut to clear with a deeply cut panelled body which is covered with a fine fine frit?... the intaglio tightly packed spirals that cover the clear body, are a work of art!… I love the fact you can see they are not perfectly all the same, clearly! hand done…
The ruby design has been framed with a cream enamel which has been framed in gold.
A deeply rope-like cut base which is so thick makes the rest of the bottle seem like it is sitting separately on it on.
Stands approx... 16cm or 6.1/2 inches tall.
I believe it to be Bohemian mid to late 19th century, I would say mid rather than late.
If anybody could help me identify who made it that would be wonderful, thank you!
