Vintage American Brilliant Cut Glass Bottle

This vintage American Brilliant Cut glass scent bottle is absolutely dazzling.

It has a uniquely demure pattern, which gives it a fabulously elegant appeal.

Although glass making was the first industry established in American in Jamestown, Virginia in 1608, it wouldn't be until almost 160 years later that cut-glass was produced.

Henry William Stiegel, a German immigrant, is credited with producing the first cut-glass in America in the American Flint Glass Manufactory in 1771.

Cut-glass pieces like this one represent artistry and craftsmanship at its best.

After the hand-blown glass is molded and cooled, the pattern is made by holding the piece against a rotating wheel.

The most skilled artisans can create delicate, complex patterns.

As you can see, this bottle is characterized by a more subtle pattern with simple linear facets all around.

The bottle features a simple "cologne" shape. The bottle is a consistent size before tapering at the neck and blooming again at the top.

Even the stopper has been masterfully hand-cut with a lovely triangular-facet pattern.

Finally, a 24-pointed star is etched in the center of the base. It's those subtle details that give American Brilliant Cut pieces like this extraordinary scent bottle its timeless elegance and grace.

The bottle remains in outstanding antique condition, exhibiting only one or two minor flea-bite scratches.

There's something so elegant and glamorous about classic glass perfume bottles.

This beauty will look perfect in a powder room or on a dressing table.
