Perfume - ID = Jonathan Harris
« on: August 09, 2012, 08:25:41 AM »
Posting this beautiful bottle in Glass although I suspect its Murano - Dense decoration to base fading to pink with lots of gold leaf - nice canes to bottom half - gold leaf to clear stopper - not marked or labelled. Any ideas.

Looks more like Isle of Wight or Jonathan Harris IMHO

Looks very similar to this Jonathan Harris 'Wilderness Pink Scent Bottle' (scroll half way down page)

That's an exact match Greg, Wilderness by IOW - I was thinking that way, re all the aventurine and the canes don't look to Murano second look. Well, good. I gave to my sister but might have kept it knowing the ID. She will enjoy it though.

NO, not IoW; Jonathan Harris http://www.jhstudioglass.com/. The range is still in production, though in a different shape. And NO, not aventurine, gold

Ah yes .. Not IoW now I look, it was the Harris that got me and I was rushing out. My mistake .. And yes gold leaf ... I meant that, I don't know why I said aventurine.

I see that Jonathan trained under his father and continued on at IoW, setting up on his own later on. I quite like his stuff.

While washing this, and while wet I was able to see it is signed to base (very faintly) Jonathan Harris, Ironbridge, 2004, England. Thanks.
