    I thought this was really beautiful. It looks like Italian art glass but I'm not sure who made it or whether it's old or not. I was told that the form is a "seahorse" shape. Thank you Eye4Beauty . It's only 4 1/2" tall and about 2 1/2" wide at the curl. There is part of a paper tag on the bottom. It looks like it has been ground down to make in level, but it's just too top heavy and still tips over easily. -Mike-

      Wow, I think mine is much nicer, but it's really hard to date glass.

      Well I checked the link and I got excited for mikelv85!!
    5. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      Feels heavy for it's size and under strong light it glows blue kind of like how fiber optic carries light though it. The whole bottom seems to light up darker blue than with normal light.

      Mike's buying!!!
    7. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      So just a little brass or silver one. Where would you find that ? Wonder if it makes a big difference if it's a valuable one ?
    8. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      Guess I better take it away from the cat then...LOL !
    9. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      Seriously it's probably just Avon.
    10. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      The thing with Avon is all their stuff is clearly
    11. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Unlike the stuff we buy!
    12. mikelv85 mikelv85, 8 years ago
      Got that right ! but then we wouldn't have so much fun :)
    13. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Very very cool! I'll take a big glass of a nice (read expensive) red.

      mikelv85, In a few of my perfume bottle collecting books, I have found some information about your bottle. I hope this adds to your own knowledge: Early American scent bottles were free blown and in whimsical shapes like the seahorse, which were made by drawing out a long tube of glass and deftly winding the end into a tight coil. Sometimes rigaree and quilling were quickly applied as decoration, or canes of colored glass might be used to give extra interest to the bottle. Dating to the late 1700's. Early American glass holds a special fascination for collectors. But the excitement that comes with finding the rarities created by our forefathers is more than patriotic fervor. The early glass possesses a simplicity and honesty of line that makes it very appealing. Because America was a colony of England and not allowed to blow glass in the Colonial period, glasshouses were not developed until the United States had achieved independence.
      I hope this adds to some of the knowledge you already have. The information came from one of my perfume bottle books called "Perfume and Scent Bottle Collecting" by Jean Sloan.

      Thanks so much smiata.I always love knowing more about the pieces I find. It's sitting in a little collectors table I found with other tiny odds and ends. I really didn't know if it was that old or of any great value. I'm just starting to learn about glass and porcelain which I'm finding is very tricky to ID. -Mike-
