STUNNING VINTAGE LARGE KIT KARBLER BLAKE STREET ART GLASS CASED PERFUME BOTTLE. This is a very large heavy paperweight style blown perfume bottle with stopper. It is a beautiful piece of contemporary American hand-made studio art glass created by glass artist Kit Karbler. This is an extremely high-quality piece of art glass.It is a cased piece with several layers of glass and it appears to me there are at least three layers of glass. I can distinctly see three different colors of glass; lavender, orange and teal see the photos. FYI - The first three photos of this piece are taken with bright light from behind (backlit), the reminder taken in natural light with no backlighting. After the artist skillfully created the glass layers to this beautiful perfume, he then ground and polished it on three sides to create a unique triangular shaped piece.
Even the stopper has been ground and polished to give it a unique triangular shape to match the perfume bottle; this large stopper is a work of art on its own. It is just stunningly beautiful!! This piece has been in my personal collection since 2005, when I bought it new from Kip at the Ann Arbor Street Fair.Please note: the faint spots you may see in the photos are from my camera and are not on the glass. The perfume is factory ground and polished on the underside so it sits flat and level. It is also signed on the bottom K. There is a piece of protective plastic film on the bottom placed there by the artist which could be removed if desired. This is a fine example of Kits work and gorgeous as you can see from the photos! I do my best to describe all items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability. Some of my photos may be somewhat lighter or darker than actual to better show detail or color. However, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or with requests for additional pictures. Our store has many unique and interesting items in several different categories from 35 years of our dealing and collecting antiques and collectables.
This piece dates to circa 2005. It is in near pristine original condition. Please look closely at the photos as they are an important part of my description of this item.
There is one extremely tiny, very shallow, flea bite to one of the edges where the perfume bottle was ground and polished and I imagine it has been there since the making. Regardless, it is extremely minor. Otherwise, there no chips, flea bites, cracks, scratches, hairlines or repairs.
There has never been any liquid inside the bottle, so no cloudiness to the glass. I will mention that the perfume does rock ever so slightly on a flat surface. Please keep in mind these photos can be blown up at least 8X-10X times normal, so anything you see will look 8X-10X times larger in the photos than it really is. Please note: if you see a dark spot in the photos it is from my camera and is not a mark on the piece. It will be either just to the right of center towards the bottom or slightly above center on the right side of the photo.About 3.125 (7.9 cm) in diameter and sits about 7.25 (18.4 cm) off the table at the top of the stopper. About 1 pound 6.125 ounces (627 grams).
