Stunning Vintage Large Andrew Shea Art Glass Cased Paperweight Perfume Bottle

STUNNING VINTAGE LARGE ANDREW SHEA ART GLASS CASED PAPERWEIGHT 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 Andrew Shea, whose studio is in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 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; cobalt blue, ruby red and a pale yellowish amber 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 colored glass layers to this beautiful perfume, he then gave the glass an etched or frosted (acid or sand blasted both the bottle and the stopper) finish and then ground and polished both the bottle (seven places) and the stopper (one place) to reveal the inner colors. A very unique technique. It is just stunningly beautiful!! This piece has been in my personal collection since 2012, when I bought it new from Andrew 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 artist ground and polished on the underside so it sits flat and level. It is also signed on the bottom simply Andrew Shea. There are four little piece of protective plastic film on the bottom (presumably to protect the bottom from scratches as well as the surface the bottle sits on) placed there by the artist which could be removed if desired. This is a fine example of Andrews 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 2012. It is in pristine original condition. Please look closely at the photos as they are an important part of my description of this item. 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 only mention one extremely tiny white stone in the glass, this is not damage but rather a minor blemish from the making of the glass this can be seen in several of the photos as a tiny white spec near the upper shoulder of the perfume bottle. 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 3.625 (9.2 cm) left to right by about 2 (5.1 cm) front to back and sits about 7.5 (19.1 cm) off the table at the top of the stopper. About 2 pounds 4.75 ounces (1.042 kilograms). On heavier items I will also offer a less expensive option, if available.

In the early 1800′s, Chico was an important center for gold mining, railroad construction and ranching. By the late 1800′s, Chico had grown into a charming Victorian community. The quaint atmosphere soon created one of the most distinctive valley towns in California. About 1893, one characteristic home with a carriage house was built in the historic Oriental section of town. Located between Orient Street and Flume Street, this site was destined to play an important role in the story Orient & Flume. Early work of the studio was directed toward recreating the silver-luster of iridescent glass of such turn-of-the-century artists as Tiffany, Steuben, and Loetz. In time, this led to their current creations of intricate, three-dimensional design’s encased in clear glass. By 1973 the carriage house proved to be too small for a rapidly growing business and was relocated to 2161 Park Avenue. The work of Orient & Flume can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum, the Smithsonian Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, the Chrysler Museum, the Corning Glass Museum and fine stores and galleries throughout the world.

Stunning Large Vintage Perthshire Millefiori Paperweight cobalt blue, pastels

This stunning early Perthshire paperweight, from that renowned but long-since-closed shop in Crieff Scotland, boasts 90 millefiori canes in pastel hues, divided into a dozen panels, by as many twisted spokes — all set over a gorgeous, deep, cobalt blue ground. It has no label or “P” cane, and is likely around 40 years old, made in the late 1970s. It is approximately 3″ or 76mm across, and 1.8″ or 46 mm high. As a vintage piece of such age, it naturally shows a bit of wear on the base, but is still almost entirely free of any scratches, wear or damage to the crystal dome. When carefully scanning with a lens — tilting it so that the light glances off it at just the right angle — you might be able to spot a barely visible scratch, a few mm long, and hardly a fine hair’s breath, near the top of the dome. Even with those few imperfections, as negligible as they are, this lovely vintage piece would make a coveted addition to any respectable collection.

This Art Glass Paperweight is from the late William Gaskills Cherished Collection. Gaskill was a former President of the National Paperweight Collectors Association (PCA) and an avid and very astute Art Glass Paperweight Collector. After His passing, his collection was on loan (for approximately 3 years from 2006 to 2009) to the Museum of American Glass (Wheaton Village) in Millville, NJ, which is now known as Wheaton Village Arts and Cultural Center. Gaskills highly regarded and very extensive Art Glass Paperweight Collection was on display in their most prominent area of the Museum at that time. Just prior to being put on display at the Museum, Lawrence Selman of the Renown L. Selman was commissioned to do an appraisal of the entire collection. Selman is known worldwide for his expertise in the field of Art Glass Paperweights and in 2001, Selman was awarded the honor of being named by the Paperweight Collectors Association, one of the Top Ten People of the 20. Century to influence the paperweight art form. Gaskills collection was considered to be one of the largest gatherings of Antique American Art Glass Paperweights known to be in private hands. In 2009 a family member took possession of the entire collection and it went safely and quietly into storage for approximately 6 years, from 2009 to 2015. In 2016 I was very proud and honored to have had the opportunity to acquire a large portion of Mr. Gaskills Wonderful and Cherished Art Glass Paperweight Collection. If youre a new collector, old collector or just would like a few original well documented paperweights for your collection please stay tuned and watch for my future Art Glass Paperweight auctions.
