Glass / ID Please for Murano?? Controlled Bubbles Perfume Bottle?
« Last post by jove14 on Today at 10:23:48 AM »
Hi, All.
Thanks to all who looked at my previous post.
Here is another one from our glass cabinet.
This appears to be a perfume bottle minus it's stopper as it has a ground neck.
It has controlled bubbles starting near to the neck with large ones these get smaller in size until they are tiny near to the ground flat
polished base.
The bubbles are connected with a green stranded lattice type work, which I think was very difficult to do.
It stands 3.5 ins or 9 cms tall by 2.5 ins or 6.5 cms across.
Any help with an ID would be appreciated.
Best Wishes.
Sorry, it was the size limit on images but i've resized the one of the base

Hi John

Many thanks for the excellent information.

Inevitably I now have another question!.   If it had been damaged in the studio would it have been immediately destroyed?... or would they have cut it down and then sold it?       Or do you think it was sold as whole, damaged by an owner and then cut down ? 

Just trying to understand its life!

thanks again - much appreciated.


1) Yes I see it :)

Well done for spotting it.
Very similar but difficult to say identical because my screen  and their photography doesn't allow to see it clearly but the bottle does look to be very similar.  Your stopsel is I would think the correct one for your bottle.  Their's appears to be plain white and a plain stopper.

Would be nice to find a book reference to that piece.  I will have another look at other books if I have time today.

2) That type of diagonal cutting is described as 'turban cut' - I couldn't remember the phrase earlier.

3) This piece has some similarity with yours in the type of glass used to make it.  Glaskilian describes it as 'milchglas'.  It is dated c.1840.  I thought it an interesting comparison:

I have one piece dating from that period which is alabasterglas from Annathal- it looks blue over white and can look quite opaque in photography (sort of could look like more opaque 'milchglas') but in my hand it is much more transparent really and a different kind of glass.  Very difficult to explain but there is a difference between what I think of as 'milchglas' and 'alabasterglas', and then also a difference between 'alabasterglas' and 'opaline glass which has been opacified with something which means when it is held up to the light it glows fiery or bright orangey red'.

If you haven't bought Das Bohmische Glas band II then I think you would find it very interesting. It is much better having books than just using the internet :)

That's interesting; we do have evidence that they marketed British glassware made by Bagley for example, as we have seen boxed examples of those. I wonder when they started acting as an agent / importer for the Durand group?
A photo of the base is always desirable when asking for attribution.

That Monogram is typical of Per Lutken.  The double mention is probably due to Christer Holmgren designing specific shapes to extend the range - perhaps after Per Lutken had died.


Thank you very much for your reply!

I will make better pictures this week, but it ěs thick and opaque.
There's only a small spot in the bottom where the opalescent effect is visible.

BUT....   just 2 minutes ago I have spotted the exact same bottle, only with another cap.
(And I'm pretty sure my cap is original)

If you are interested in seeing it:
Go to the passau Museum Website.

-Then click to visit the Biedermeier Hall.
-From where the camera starts, it's in the 7th showcase, if you move to the right.
-I'm pretty excited by the way, since I have been searching for months, and by some kind of intuition
 had the urge to visit the Panorama on their website.

Perhaps I should thank you ;)
Would agree most likely Bohemian.  Date wise it is possible it might be closer to  c.1840-1845 based on a  becher in the book Das Bohmische Glas Band II page 163 plate II.240. 
The becher appears to be similar colourway blue over white.  It also has similarities in the cutting with square ish panels and the diagonal cutting around although the diagonal cutting was I think in fashion at the time and can be seen on pieces from other makers as well -  for example a Deckelpokal from Neuwelt on page 88.  Another consideration is that the blue over white overlay and the diagonal cutting can also be seen on pieces from Adolfhutte bei Winterberg from that time.
The becher on page 163 also has a very similar gilded  random meandering vine leaf pattern on it. 
It is attributed as 'Vermutlich Annathal bei Schuttenhofen c. 1840-1845'.

It would be nice to try and match the stopper which is unusual.

Also is it possible to get a photograph of the bottle without the lid, with a light shone behind it.  I'd like to see how transparent the alabasterglas is.  I presume it does not glow red at all with a strong sunlight shining through it for example?  Your photography of your piece makes it look very opaque. I suspect that is just the way it is photographed and perhaps it is less opaque in real life?
