Unusual Perfume Bottle by Gene Polt

This rather unusual perfume bottle looks as if it has wax dripped over it and then iridised to give it a magical glow. It has a stopper with a long dauber that reaches almost to the bottom of the vessel. This amazing piece was crafted by West Australian artist Gene Polt who sadly passed away many years ago. Gene was very good friends with Alan Fox and they opened a glass studio together called the glass nest studio in Western Australia. I have since spoken to Robyn his wife who is kindly writing a background and history for him.
