This specific one of a kind Glass Cross Bottle has a century old glass pharmaceutical bottle base from Buenos Aries that dates from the 1800's era. The rich tobacco brown glass bottle is embossed with the words "Farmacia Vassallo ~ Buenos Aries" and still has the original label "Extracto Fl, De Ucalipto" . This lovely antique bottle features a magnificent polished Turbo Seashell encrusted with vintage European lead topaz crystal jewels and crystal pyramids. The bottle is adorned with a Czech crystal bead chain, a sterling silver connector and a medly of charms including a soldered crystal square, an antique skeleton key, a sterling silver mini coin and starfish and a silver crystal jewel. This bottle features a grotto seashell theme and is stunning and most spectacular and unusual.
This is a handmade, handcrafted one of a kind original work of art. This is a Glass Cross Bottle crafted by an artisan in our studio who carefully selects and articulates each of the stunning antique vintage components and puts them together as an original and very unique work of old world artistry.
Our Glass Cross Bottles are made from antique unearthed glass bottles, most over a century old, and each with a rich time worn history and a story all of its own. Each bottle, some from the early Americas and most from Europe, has an archival patina kissed by age and its own unique declaration of another era of time gone by. We add reclaimed and collected parts from European lead crystal chandeliers both vintage and antique. Each lead crystal has a unique shape and color that infracts light with an incredible display of dazzling prisms of light.
Each bottle is articulated with a unique artistic interpretation and the crystals have been fastened with a layering of heavy old world solder that is then hand washed with a time worn rich patina of blackened pewter and weathered iron. Many of our Cross Bottles are dressed and adorned with collected Czech rosary chain and crystals beads, seashells, jewels, and seed pearls that have been saved and collected for many years. Other bottles are further embellished with sterling silver treasures and pewter wax seals, jeweled hearts and crosses. Careful attention is given to the selection of all of the impeccable details.
Lovely in a window where they can work their magic making light dance. They are also stunning in small groups where they are just absolutely breathtaking.
These bottles, for the artist, are a very special interpretation of God's Grace at the Cross of Calvary. They celebrate the creative artistic gifts that are given to us by the Creator to reflect His brilliance and His great gift of love for us all as individuals created in His image. It is our hope that the beauty of these artistic bottles will have a very special meaning to all that chose to own or to share one and that they will bring great joy along with their incredible shimmering beauty.
