STUNNING IRIDESCENT EXAMPLE OF
AUSTRALIAN STUDIO ART GLASS
Presenting an exquisite iridescent Australian studio art glass perfume bottle
expertly hand crafted and signed by the renowned glass artist Sean O'Donoghue.
This exceptionally fine example has a wonderfully
appealing clean-lined contemporary shape and sparkles
with a beautiful metallic iridescent colour.
This striking bottle has been hand crafted in a gorgeous
transparent warm golden yellow colour. A large veil of opaque
iridescent colour overlays the yellow, covering two thirds of the
bottle and glistening with stunning milky opalescent shades of pink,
purple, blue, gold and green. The magnificent iridescent colour
appears to change as light dances over the surface of the glass.
A gentle vertical ribbing to the bulbous shaped body
magnificently enhances the incredible sparkle of the glass.
The original, tight fitting clear glass stopper perfectly completes the piece.
This exquisite piece, is presented in excellent vintage
condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. This piece has been
exceptionally well cared for and presents spectacularly.
This impressive perfume bottle stands approx 90mms tall including the
stopper, 50mms tall excluding the stopper and measures 60mms in width.
Aged just 15 years old, Irish born O'Donoghue was accepted in a
5 year apprenticeship with the renowned crystal company Waterford.
10 years later he awarded the title of Master Blower. After 14 years
with Waterford, O'Donoghue needed a new challenge, migrating to the
sunny shores of Noosa where he established his own studio. Drawing
on his skills learnt at Waterford, and with the reefs and rainforests as
his inspiration, O'Donoghue creates his vibrantly coloured pieces which
feature in both public and private collections in Australia and overseas.
This superb piece is beautifully signed to the base as indicated in the images.
This superb piece would make a fabulous
addition to any Sean O'Donoghue, iridescent glass,
perfume bottle or Australian Studio art glass collection !!
A perfect gift idea for the discerning admirer
of unique and individual, fine quality, artistically
designed, hand crafted objects of sheer beauty.
