This is a large Daum Iris Perfume with Rectangular Bottle. This one has had some professional restoration. The frosted crystal bottle is the undamaged original.The Iris stopper had damage to one of the three light yellow petals. That petal was broken off and has been reattached. The repair is so good that the previous break is very hard to see. That petal has also been reshaped and is smaller than it was originally. The other two light yellow petals are undamaged and so are the top three amethyst petals. The restoration was done by a very skilled artisan who does great work. As a result, the repairs are hardly noticeable unless you go looking for them. This is still a great looking item that any perfume bottle collector would be proud to own.
Measurements: Overall Height with Stopper 7.9 inches, Bottle Width 2.5 inches, Depth 1.75 inches, Weighs 1 pound 6 ounces, Capacity 5.4 ounces. This piece was hand made in Daums Nancy France workshops by skilled artisans. Pate de Verre items are created from a paste of different colored crushed glass particles. These are placed in a mold and then fired in a hot kiln for ten days. The glass particles fuse together forming an attractive Pate de Verre item.
No two Daum Pate de Verre items have the same exact coloration because the particles are distributed differently in the molds. The ancient lost wax process is used which enables Daum to execute designs that would not be possible with traditional press molding. Daum has posted a video that walks you through the Paté de Verre process. The item "Large Daum Crystal Iris Perfume Bottle Rectangular $905 Retail Signed" is in sale since Sunday, August 25, 2019.
