Decorative Hand Blown Glass Perfume Bottle
Date/Circa: 1950Origin: U.S. Catalog No: A0714
Height: 7"Diameter: 3.5"
An unusually decorative painted perfume, with its hobnail glass stopper.
The shaped base is hand blown by Fenton, and hand decorated. The collar and stopper is old hobnail glass.
Hobnail glass has a regular pattern of raised knobs like the hobnail studs sometimes used on boot soles. It was very popular during Victorian times, and usually hand blown. It also can be created by blowing a glass vessel or by pressing the glass into a mold.
In very good condition, except for the chip on the bottom of the stopper, please see images.
