Perfume Bottle, Any Ideas?
« on: September 21, 2012, 09:55:15 PM »
Lovely perfume bottle bought cheaply today, quite finely made with blue ground and white mottling, black and dark blue strap work, flat finely polished base - no marks. I bought because I felt it was not a chinese import (charity shops abound with these) on the same shelf were caithness paperweights and wedgwood glass animals - maybe there is a clue there, I don't know as I only own one other perfume bottle. Any ideas?

I think it's Alum Bay Glass, Isle of Wight. (Not to be confused with Isle of Wight Glass)

Reply back from Alum Bay. It's not one of theirs.

Could it be Caithness?

Yes Rosie. There were a few animals but I already had versions of them, or they didn't seem interesting enough. There was a Wedgwood robin.

The speckly bit at the bottom looks like Caithness, but the black straps don't.
I was pondering in the vague direction of perhaps Mtarfa or Phoenician......

A photo or two showing the pattern on the base and some more on the rest of the bottle might come in handy Adam.

Well it was only on Friday, I am passing the shop on Tuesday (bank holiday Monday) I might take a look in again and see if he is still there. LOL.

OK, you are forgiven Adam.  ;)
I hope you find out who made the perfume bottle as well.
