The questions I have for the mid-century modern universe are two-fold:
- Who made this and approximately when?
- How much would you value it at?
Clue #1 Interior is white through and through. It is about 14" high, I believe.
Clue #2 I feel the quality of the lip is poor as it is a bit uneven.
Clue #3 It came with an amber glass stopper that doesn't fit the bottle AT ALL. Bottle color is yellow amber. Glass stopper is amber.
Clue #4 Glass stopper is super cheap and bad quality with a weird poor glass indent. Very loose on bottle and can't possibly go with it. I think?
Clue #5 Glass bottle itself has noticeable bubbles left by the blowing process. Another indication of poor quality?
Clue #6 There could potentially be a maker's mark on the bottom. Hard to see from this picture but it is like pencil indentations in a circular pattern. I can't hardly describe it.
Clue #7 Another indication of mixed quality, there are a couple of hairline fractures in the overlay glass, don't seem to go all the way through. I can't really show it in a picture, it is dead center. They are about half inch long, and there are two or three.
So what do I have? A pretty bottle? I bought it at Discovery Shop in Corona del Mar. They are a mis-placed thrift shop in kind of an upscale neighborhood. They randomly get in fairly high quality items, but generally are well aware of their value.
Punch line: they priced it at $25. So what is it? Did I over-pay (wouldn't be the first time).
Leave your answer in comments!
I know someone in the mid-century modern
world will know the answer to this mystery.
Thanks for helping!
