This topaz and clear color heavy glass bottle has been sandblasted to give a textured feel and a soft glowing look. The name of the bottle is “Racer’s Wrap”, designed and hand blown by Eric Bladholm of Chicago Glassworks. Eric is a studio glass artist who uses his talent to sculpture blown glass into both art and perfume bottles. The saucer shape bottle has an elongated neck with a clear frosted wispy ribbon of glass wrapped around it. The clear frosted leaf shaped dauber stopper gives a candle like appearance to the overall design.
