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.

Lady Perfume Bottle by Eleanor

A very unusual perfume bottle in the shape of a woman’s torso with a brass or gold wire thread draped over the body creating the illusion of fabric.The stopper is a spherical shape representing the head wearing a large brimmed hat. The wire was included when the piece was being blown as in some areas it has been enveloped by the glass. This bottle is signed to the top of the hat with what looks to be Eleanor. Although I do not know where this perfume bottle was made I feel that it may be Australian however someone else may be able to shed some light on it for me.
