They don't make them like that anymore

While I was browsing Pinterest looking for new things to blog about for this site, I stumbled across a beautiful perfume bottle.

These glass birds on the side of the bottle are what caught my attention.  It had to click on it to see if there were any other bottles that were just a beautiful and luckily I was not disappointed.



Maybe it is just me, but I instantly wonder what the perfume smelled like?  Was the scent as delicate as the bottles that held them?  And what kind of woman had one of these bottles?  What type of bottle would you have bought if you could have afforded expensive perfume in the 1920s?  Do you think these are art, or do you think this is something that any glass artist could do?  Is this a lost art?

  3. These bottles are beautiful. I wonder how long it took to make them and if the style matched the scent they held. I wonder how angry someone would be if they broke it.

  7. This is amazing. Working with glass is hard to do. There are a lot of different styles and techniques you have to do to make objects while holding molten glass. This must have taken a long time to make.

  10. I like how the bottles are made from glass and the design is so cool. I like the blue one because its design is so unique and the cap to the bottle really catches the eye.

  11. I think the bottles would've been owned by wealthy women. I think that these are really cool pieces of art with a pratical purpose besides just to display them. I love the way the first one looks with the two birds on the opposite sides of the bottle.

  13. These bottles are gorgeous and I wonder how long it took to make them and if the style had matched the scent they held or if it is just for decoration.

  14. It had to have been hard to make these out of glass. I bet these are very expensive and wealthier people are able to afford them. You wouldn't want to put cheap perfume in these bottles.

  16. These had to be very hard to make. They would've taken a very skilled person who knew what they were doing. They are probably very expensive.

  17. How would you even create something like that, that's a lost art. I couldn't even draw something that good. What costs moe the perfume in the bottle or the bottle itself?

    ReplyDelete
  18. These are so cool. It amazes me how they created these. It looks like it would cost a lot of money to buy this. The detail on it is so good. I am baffled how good they made it look.

  19. These pieces really look like the person who made this are insane. How much time and effort goes into these when they can be destroyed in an instant. I think everyone who does art is probably insane and should be put on a watchlist.

  32. I wish that they still made bottles like that. I think it was just look really cool. It just makes everything look more expensive and fancy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm not that good of a fan of this art because it's just not what I like. This is still good artwork but it's just not what I like. I would not want to see this intown or in a store.

  35. I always thought glass sculptures were so cool because I imagine it would be very hard it's not like you can just stick in a mold and color it

  36. I think that the painting looks beautiful and that the painting must have been very time consuming because its excellent

  40. I think these are very pretty and I would like to do that. I like savaging "garbage" and turning it into art.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would take one of these bottles because the definatly took a lot of time to make and they probably smell decent.

  42. I think that these are really cool. You must have to have a lost of patients to do something like that. This is something i could never do.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think that these are art, and I think that glass working is an art because glassworkers make beautiful, delicate objects for many purposes, such as jewelry boxes, cups/glasses, sun catchers, paper weights, and decoration, and I would break EVERYTHING around me if I tried to do that. If I could afford perfume like this in the 1920's, I would definitely buy it.

  44. These remind me of my grandmas old perfume bottles. I like the feeling of the glass, but i hate the smell of the perfume.

  46. It is a very delicate art. The glass work would be difficult for me since I am very clumsy. When I see these I think of like an old-lady smell of roses or flowers. I think it was for the wealthy women back in the days and that they were a pretty penny.

  47. This is really cool and intricate design. I think this is something really cool to look at but i dont think i could ever do anything as good or cool as this.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This looks like very difficult work, and I dont think I could ever do it. This reminds me somewhat of my grandmas perfume bottles. It looks very delicate too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am not the kind to splurge lots of money on an expensive perfume. In my opinion, this is all just a waste of time and money and talent. but i do appreciate the time and talent that went into these creations

    ReplyDelete
  50. How do they have the time to do that. How do they have the money to do that. it would be fun to do tho

    ReplyDelete
  51. Its amazing how they can shape these bottles like this with all those curves. My attention span is very short so i don't think i could do actual art like this.

    ReplyDelete
  52. i think this is really cool how they can do this with glass i think it would be really really hard to do tho

  55. this is very very cool how they make this out of glass

  56. I like how they sculpted glass out of all this because it is very detailed and you have to be careful on not to cut or break the glass

  60. This seems like something that you would have to spend to much money on purchasing it, but it looks like the person(s) who made it is very talented. I have both sides of the opinion about it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This artwork I feel people would like. I don't think I could do it though. You would have to be very talented in order to do it. Maybe your senior class would enjoy it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This is a beautiful art form. I can understand why many companies don't do this. It's just a bit too difficult and time-consuming to be worth it, but I definitely do wish more bottles like this could exist.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Has to just be extremely hard because your gonna have to do it while the glass is still hot.The possibility breaking is high but somehow these people are out here getting it.The red color put in the glass along with the striation are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  64. These look very nice. My only problem is they look very hard to do. I don't think I would be able to do these.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like the last one, it looks interesting. All of them are very nice. I don;t think I could create any of these though.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I really want to learn how to do these. It's so intricate and seems time consuming. I don't think I could focus for that long without getting sidetracked or breaking something.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really like these pieces of art they look cool, and interesting, and look very difficult to do, but it would be really cool to try it out.
