Heavy Art Deco Faceted Perfume Bottle. Czech? Any ideas?
« on: March 09, 2006, 03:34:17 PM »
Hi,

A heavy, chunky, faceted glass perfume bottle 4" (10) wide x 5" (12.5cm) tall to the top of the stopper. Simply oozes Art Deco and has a pale lemon (not vaseline) colour. Any ideas for an ID?

(yes I will clean it!)

 :shock: click to zoom :shock:

:: Bumpity-bump :: :D

As can be seen, the 'applicator' is a glass rod attached to the stopper.

Most likely Czech panel cut, nice piece if pristine. I try to avoid panel cut items - one look and there is a corner missing  :(

I've got a similar bottle in blue - slightly different shape, but similar in style, I mean  :oops:  http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-1237

Is it likely to be same maker, or just same era?   :?

I agree, and sometimes the damage is not obvious with so many 'pointy-out bits'. No real substantial damage here... but there's a slight bruise on one corner of the stopper and a couple of fleabites. Not pristine though.

What did surprise me though is that lack of a uranium glow! 8)  

Leni: yes, there are similarities to yours, so might be attributable to the same company. I'll include the word 'Czech' in the title and see if Marcus pops up :wink:

Abracadabra..... :lol:
Could well be Czech as large quantities of the panel cut items originated there. Citrine, a common colour. Who made it, could be very difficult as many raffineries bought in blanks from elsewhere.

Nothing similar in Novy, and sadly don't yet have a copy of Lnenickova & Novy's, "Schranky Vuni: Ceske Toaletni Sklo".

regards,

Marcus

It's not shown in Lnenickova & Novy's, "Schranky Vuni: Ceske Toaletni Sklo" but that's not to say it's not Czech as the book only covers a tiny fraction of Czech toilet set output.
