Recently purchased this Isle of Wight Studio stoppered perfume bottle. Measures 5.5 inches wide and approx 4 inches tall and has the flame pontil mark.
Just thinking about the date and pattern of this piece. I guess the flame pontil would date it to sometime in the 70s, however am I correct in thinking that this is a relatively earlyish pattern and could date from sometime between 1973 and 1975. Assuming if it was any earlier, it would have either a broken pontil mark or the coachbolt mark.
The paper label has come off, I've attached a separate photo below. Very similar to the label in Mark Hill's book although doesn't have the England wording. I purchased the bottle from a collector in the states so don't know if this has a bearing on the omission of the 'England' wording.
Any thoughts / confirmations on date and pattern greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
