Uber-Elegant American Brilliant Cut Glass Scent Bottle

This antique American Brilliant Cut glass scent bottle is beyond elegant. It boasts a skillfully hand-cut pattern throughout, and it has a pleasing weight.

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

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

Cut-glass pieces like this represent the best of artistry and craftsmanship.

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 features a classic shape with a round, stout body that tapers to the neck. Then, it blooms into a wide collar.

Even the large stopper features a wonderful triangular facet pattern.

The bottle is decorated with a unique hobstar pattern. It is further accented with narrow leaf shapes, criss-cross textures, and a simple scalloped pattern at the shoulder. Finally, the underside of the bottle is embellished with a 24-pointed star.

It's these subtle details that give American Brilliant Cut pieces their timeless elegance and grace.

The bottle exhibits some very minor wear and a few teeny flea-bite scratches on the underside but remains in outstanding antique condition overall.

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.
