Really odd looking Julia Linstead vase/bottle
« on: April 12, 2018, 02:58:37 AM »
Not even sure what it is, stopper comes off at the top. 9.5 inches high. Maybe one of her earlier pieces?

 ??? Is Julia Linstead not an engraver, rather than a glassmaker?
I'm used to seeing her work on beautiful coloured blanks made by Jane Charles.

I do see her work in the Strathearn Gallery in Crieff, it is all engraved and on Jane Charles blanks, now.
The image of the yellow bowl looks like a Jane Charles blank I've seen Julia's work on.

So I don't know if Julia made glass herself earlier on or not, and the wording on the site is a little vague.
But your perfume bottle (?) does look as if it could easily be something she made early on, if she did. :)
