A stunning piece this vase is in the most beautiful cranberry colour with a white design of vertical stripes and dots. The shape of this vase is that of a waisted design such as a beautiful woman wearing a corset with a form fitting dress.

A small perfume bottle crafted by the renown glass artist Julio Santos of New South Wales. The flask shaped bottle has a mottling of coloured chips to the entire body with a red streak that looks like a lava flow from a crack in the earth. This vessel has a metallic iridising that shimmers with the light giving it a very organic look.
This small bottle is probably a perfume bottle however the stopper seems to be missing. The bottle has a wonderful iridescence over a creamy gold with rivers of blue criss crossing the main body. Crafted by the Late Gene Polt of Western Australia a true artisan.
This circular lead-light panel of a unicorn was created using a Sue Daw design as the inspiration and is made with a brown streaky glass for the head and a caramel glass for the horn plus German hand made antique clear glass for the background with soft cream streaky glass for the mane.

This is an unusual perfume bottle for the famed Western Australian artist Alan Fox as the main body is in clear glass with a ribbon of red and blue threads swirl around the piece. A bit of a divergence from his usual and much sought after heavily iridised work this shows yet another side to Alan Fox.
These two ink bottles are possibly made by the same artist as they are similar in design and size. One is in a beautiful cobalt blue while the other has a mottled design in black over clear. Unfortunately they are both unsigned however I am confident that they are Australian made perhaps as end of day work or that of students.
This large and colourful glass egg shaped paperweight is in beautiful ribbons of white, blue wine colour and a touch of mint green encased in a clear body with suspended bubbles. A beautiful weight that was created by an unknown artist and is simply signed France to the base.
A large heavy cornucopia with the tail curling around a pearl with a blue flower. The organic shape is highlighted by frills running down the body looking like fins on a large jellyfish or squid standing on a starfish shaped base.
