    Robert Eickholt Art Glass
    I was given this Robert Eickholt Perfume Bottle, that's missing the stopper, so it can be a Paperweight now, by a friend, at the Flea Market, on Sunday March 4, 2018. The Bottle is made with a cobalt blue, and mixed agate glass, with gold flecks interior, and cased with a thick clear glass exterior, and there is a problem with that exterior casing, a crack, that encircles, from the bottom of the center opening in the bottle, but can't be felt, and doesn't fracture the interior glass. Still a very beautiful piece of Art Glass.
    The teardrop shape Perfume is 4 1/2" tall, 5 1/4" at the widest, 2 1/4" at the thickest, the center opening is an off round 1 1/2"+-, and the hole in the top of the perfume is 3/8". It is etched in 3 lines on the bottom, in cursive Eickholt 2003 PMAH
    I believe that I read that Robert Eickholt retired in 2015, and his Art Glass Studio, no longer produces glass pieces.
    Here's a Bio. for Robert Eickholt, from "The Prudent Collector":

    Robert Eickholt is a well known glass artist who has been creating captivating blown glass for over 30 years. Robert founded Eickholt Glass in 1978 when he returned home to Columbus, Ohio after studying glassblowing in Berkeley, California. Once home he continued his studies at Ohio State and at the Columbus College of Art and Design.
    Since its founding the studio has produced numerous types of beautiful art glass creations such as paperweights, vases, eggs, sculptures and perfume bottles. Each piece is made one at a time and completely unique. Eickholt Glass is quite well known for their distinctive designs which incorporate precious metals including gold and silver and rare oxides like cobalt and copper. Their beautiful art glass has earned them accolades worldwide.

    I have a link to The Prudent Collector, and a link to an Ebay post, of a similar Perfume, by Eickholt Glass, that I'll post in comments.

    Thank you for looking, all comments, and questions are welcome! :^)

      Lovely, unique piece. I can see it as a vase, too!

      Thanks Laura, I think maybe a little shallow, only 1 1/4" from the top of the 3/8" opening, to the top of the inside of the open center, but maybe a small rose bud, or straw flowers! :^D

      Thank you for taking a look, Rich, and Laura, and loving what you saw too! :^)

      Eickholt was a master glass blower.
      I am sure a glass blower somewhere could whip up a stopper for you if you wanted Bill.

      Thanks Karen, yes I could probably get one, might even have one that would look good with it, but it's fine just the way it is, for me! :^D
