I didn't see the photo of the top of the piece!  Golly, I feel quite silly now.  :P  I thought Soledivo meant the pattern within the clear gather of glass around the body.  Ooops!  Yes, I feel inclined to agree with Adam now. 

I had a bit of trouble looking at the photo's so maybe I thought I'd seen them all when I hadn't.   :mus:

Going back to the functionality of art glass  ;) a 'perfume bottle' doesn't have to be functional either.  I don't think anyone actually uses them for perfume these days, do they?  The oasis (for want of a better word) for the liquid perfume can be very small compared to the overall size of the bottle.  Perhaps you could call some of them a kind of boast, or conceit of a glassmaker, showing their artistic skill with a nod towards past designs.

Of course, some people collect perfume bottles, so they'll always be popular and will continue to be made by skilled artisans, regardless of whether people use them for their proposed purpose.   :D

Sarcy aren't we  :cry:

I bow to your expertise, an if you let me know where you are I'd love to pop in 1 day. I'm on the South Coast.
What I thought was because there are ni little or minute area's around the "stopper" that aren't touching the bottle neck.
It must have been jammed in really hard if thats what it is,

unless of course the stopper was hit by a meteor.

Bang goes my valuation of it too.   :cry:

It is, by the way, a particularly nice piece of space debris! ;D

I think I'm going right off this glass lark.

Guess it was a stupid thing to start with 2 teenage sons and big dog.

The lady dancing figure of mine has magically grown a bothery great crack along the back of her dress, the only good part is its at the back.
Both denying any knowledge, both looking guilty as hell.
And my lovely French sculpture isn't a sculpture but, "read above".

Guess it's one of those days.   :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Hey Martin, I can raise you three pre-teens and two dogs - we've only had a couple of tragedies (so far - crossing fingers, touching wood and tossing salt over my left shoulder).

It's still a gorgeous piece. We've all been there, Martin - just call it tuition glass and tote it up to experience. Adam, is there any easy way of getting the remains of the lid out?

Very tricky. One has to be careful not to break the neck which is anyhow a weak point. One way is to engrave the stopper away to nothing.

Awww don't give up Martin!

My new cat has already broken a wonderful Rindskopf hyacinch vase (which I loved) and a small Seguso bird (only found that on the tiled floor of the studio a couple of nights ago..tail broken off)

I think everyone here has a shed or room which houses their glass 'which must not be spoken of'...the horrors first bought, the annoyingly chipped, the waterstained and the pieces which you liked once, but have outgrown.

It's very exclusive and expensive to join that club...welcome!   ;) ;) :-*

thanks everyone  :hiclp:,

its only been a year since I started this in earnest. I will share 1 really stupid thing I did last year.
With the level of my knowledge now I'm fairly sure its an AVEM bowl, large weighs 5 or 6 lb's.
So it was mucky, I started washing it, 1 minute late "oops this is the hot tap", puts it straight under the cold tap, "CRACK".

I done some stupid things, but what an idiot  :hb2:.

1 good thing is I have started building my website,
martin
