IOW bottle pattern
« on: April 02, 2024, 04:50:49 PM »
Picked this up the other week from an antiques centre describing it as 'Murano bottle'. I am almost certain that it's an IOW piece however I have not seen this colourway before and can't find anything similar in MH book or on IOW glass collectors website.
Any thoughts and ideas welcome  ;D

I suspect you have found an unknown colour combination, so probably experimental.
Everything else looks spot on for IoWSG.
There were different combinations tried, not all went into production.

Well done.

How tall is it? Spot on for an attenuated bottle, this club shape tends to crop up in the first few years of production. I keep thinking it might be pink and blue swirls gone wrong, something like too much heat.

It measures 37cm in height. I can see where your coming from, it is very similar to the pattern of 'pink & blue swirls ;D

Think that would make it a 'short' attenuated bottle. The pattern is found with other colour combinations too so tricky.

Some shapes to compare.

I think I'd prefer to call it experimental rather than a failed colour  ;D
It'll go on the shelf and see how long it goes unnoticed from the partner!
Thanks for everyone's input  :D

I did notice in some pink and blue swirls the pink colour went green when it was backlit.
