Glass / Re: Iridescent pink perfume bottle with possible mark?

Midsummer Glass maybe worth checking out.
After a decade of experimentation, in 1918 the Möser house would patent the technique of engraving painted in gold, fired and finally polished or patinated with color under the name <Oroplastic>. In the following decades, the intensely colored crystal pieces, also exclusive, adorned with a golden band, were among the most characteristic of the firm. From 1922 is the Fipop series, designed by Leo Möser, where some young Amazons, with a neoclassical appearance, parade in a circle on pieces of finely carved glass with geometric shapes closer to Art-Decó.

That's a very narrow and what appears to be a quite deep base rim for a polished pontil mark, so I'm still thinking pressed. Bubbles are pretty random in blown and pressed glass
Glass / Iridescent pink perfume bottle with possible mark?
« Last post by chasdevlin on Yesterday at 06:29:19 PM »
Picked up this rather pretty perfume bottle (I expect, although it has no stopper). Swirls of pinks and cranberry and a lovely greenish iridescence that the photos haven't fully captured. There seems to be a D and a U or N embossed into the pontil mark, although staring into pontil marks can be like staring into clouds - you can see all sorts of things if you want to, so I can't decide whether it's deliberate.
I'm aware there are many studio makers making similar pieces but haven't been able to tie this down.
Height of 8 cm, width of 9cm..
Thoughts welcome!

That definitely looks like a polished pontil. I see there is quite a bit of wear too, so it wasn’t made yesterday. Is the spiral up the sides from a series of long trapped air bubbles or is it a form of optic ribbing (where the thickness of the sides is varied), it’s hard to see?

The uranium makes quite a difference!

Hi and welcome. I was assuming it is cut rather than pressed? It has some similarities with this one that is from Silesia (apparently a region in Poland, Germany and Czech Republic) from around 1840.

Thank you for the replies. I'll have to keep looking. There are a few bubbles inside the glass toward the bottom. One small, and two tiny ones. From what I read, uneven bubbles can be a sign of blown glass, vs even distribution is more likely pressed. For what thats worth...

Background reading here is around 40-60 CPM. I should just leave my meter on all day while at work to get a better reading. I've only sampled background for a few minutes at a time.

I don't think the vase itself is in any doubt, Roy.  :)
