Help Dating Large Murano Perfume Bottle
« on: April 05, 2014, 09:52:59 PM »
Picked up a couple of pieces at estate sale, need info if possible thanx. Stands 12" with top on and signed:  L Onesto Murano Italy. Could not find similar block shaped perfume bottles by him online, but many other shapes. Wondering if anyone had an inkling to date of production. Thnx for looking.

A friend had one similar recently, well made high quality sommerso with squared profile and a stopper with the same construction, so I assume  the same maker. That perfume bottle had no wear at all and although this is not a reliable way to judge age I thought it looked and felt quite modern. All guesswork but my impression was within the last ten years.

Suggest sending his studio a photo of this bottle, the Onestos are still making glass. Getting a specific year is not easy, lots of the glass made by the many factories there for the tourist trade, you are most lucky that this one is signed. Awesome pieces, and very valuable in the right market.
