This is an interesting and harder-to-find piece of 1980s Scottish art glass.
This beautiful vase was made by Perthshire Paperweights - looking to earlier Monart and Strathearn glass vases for inspiration.
This one is most definitely a Perthshire Paperweights issue - as it has an impressed letter P on the base, as photographed. These vases were often made by a glass artist at Perthshire called Charles Young and he looked at Ysart Monart pieces for his designs and technique.
This is a very fine piece of Scottish glass - it is a tall trumpet-shaped vase with a slightly flared rim. The rim has inclusions of speckled black glass which creates swirling patterns - and there are also oodles of twinkling gold aventurine.
The main body colour is a dark aqua green - and this main body section has more opaque swirls throughout - a bit reminiscent of curls of smoke disappearing into the air.
Dimensions: Height is 6 1/2 inches. The diameter at the top is 5 inches and the diameter at the bottom is 3 1/4 inches.
Unpacked it is 800 grams.
These Perthshire vases with the P mark - are harder to find. A fair price for this attractive Scottish glass vase - no damages etc.
