Not my first example of later (1920s - 30s) Peloton glass, but my first of this particular type.
This elegant Art Deco perfume atomiser is in pristine condition. I believe that the tubing & bulb have been replaced.
It is made from cased glass - clear over deep orange spatter with Peloton threaded decor in dark burgundy/oxblood. The Peloton threads are quite blended in & blurred compared to most Peloton glass of the Victorian type.
It measures around 18 cm tall, & 5.3 cm across the base.
Czech origin, though unmarked as is fairly typical of glass from this period found in Australia.
The final weeks of our four month lockdown have sent me into a buying binge, & this piece marks the beginning of an onslaught of new acquisitions. Much more to come in the near future (despite ongoing delays to the postal system caused by a "shadow pandemic" of online shopping & industrial action by delivery drivers. Oh please bring on October 11 when I can actually do some in person shopping beyond the supermarket!)
