Peter Tysoe perfume bottle (UK)

This dates from the early 1980s, bought new in some posh dept. store in London, labelled Peter Tysoe Glass.  Posting as a reference as it still has the label.   8)

Quite a sophisticated and delicate little thing - it's got the sort of bubble that is outilned in the colour, a deep green, not a full spread halo, but an outline.
You've been tracking down and posting some very interesting things - thank-you again for sharing! :-*
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks Sue. These were made in a plum colour also, we bought two of them - I had the green one and my mother had the plum one. She no longer has hers, but they were identical shape and size.  I have always loved this! I decided to d**t and take some pics, hence the new posts! ;)

Saw a recent Facebook query re Peter who spent many years in Australia and was VP or President of Ausglass.  The bubbled glass reminds me of Julio Santos's work here, and also of a Tom Levkovski who was at Monash Caulfield for some years and used a pale blue bubbled glass to great effect.  The clear vessel and the pwt are Julio's work, the coloured decanter is Tom Levkovski.  I have yet to acquire a piece of Peter's work so far as I know.

Thanks Ross, that's interesting to see. Mine pre-dates Peter's work in Australia - this is one of those glassmakers who spans continents! I do like his stuff!

This flask or decanter is signed and dated 79, lovely soft tones and iridescence. I have also seen drinking glasses and tall thin bottles in the same colours.

I am still in touch with Peter, who is now approaching his 80th birthday at the end of this month. We swapped emails only last week, so I'll let him know of this growing fan club. I have been collecting his glass since 2006 when I first came into contact with him regarding his design work for Chance Brothers in 1969-71. The Psychedelic pattern being the most famous (more on Peter in Chance Expressions pp.53-54, 132; Chance Additions, p.68).

Here are just two of his studio pieces - the plate (signed, 25cm dia) has a slight iridescence. The vase (with label) is 18cm tall and this colourway is quite popular.

I am glad that he is finally getting some exposure!  :)

More of Peter's work. I did say I was a collector, didn't I?  ;)

As a size guide:

Pic.1 - The height of the small pot (right) is 10.5cm
Pic.2 - The largest champagne flute is 28.5cm tall; the tallest perfume is 17cm.

You have the beautiful goblet that matches John's lovely decanter.
