New acquisition 2 - IOW Perfume bottle
« on: June 26, 2010, 01:22:24 PM »
I have also just bought this rather pretty perfume bottle, with IOW glass label, but no pontil mark or etched name anywhere. This is my first piece of IOW glass, and I have not found much info on the  net.  any pointers to where I can find more info would be appreciated.

It does not seem to be from a current range on their own website. Does anyone know what range it is and any idea of age? It has a bit of wear to base.
Including stopper it is 10.5 cm ( 4.1.4 inches) high, 7 cm (2 3/4 inches) wide, and 3 cm ( 1/1/4 inches)  thick.

thanks JAK

Meadow Garden Clover I think, 1984-1986. Clover was introduced in 1983 but the small flask perfume bottle wasn't made until 1985. Clover was discontinued in 1986. Info Michael Harris, Mdina Glass & Isle of Wight Studio Glass, Mark Hill

Thanks Christine - what a speedy reply!  Sounds like a book I need to buy if I am going to collect any more.
And meadow garden clover describes its colours perfectly ! Thanks again.

Thanks to every one for your help with this - another thought crossed my mind - as I am new to IOW glass I also have no idea of values, and in fact ended up paying more for this than I expected - 'cos I wanted it badly enough ;D

So does it go into ;

too expensive but I don't care
paid about the right price, or
what a bargain !

It cost me (including postage) $45 (Aus) which is about £25 I think at present

Probably a bargain - I reckon, going by the early age and the limited production period - but there's a premium on perfume bottles, I think. They have their own collectors in the same way that paperweights do - a reason I avoid them!

Often people forget that when they buy a perfume bottle they are buying two pieces of glass, both of which have to be made. Once made the stopper has to be ground in to the bottle. This process adds time. Just one reason why perfume bottles often cost more. £25 including postage is certainly good value. :)

Silly question (Maybe)  Did this company make any PW at all?  Just curious....
