MacKenzie-Childs Vintage Pine Scent Bottle 1991


MacKenzie-Childs Vintage Retired Circus Pine-Scent Bottle 1991

This beautiful hand-painted glass bottle with real pinecone cork stopper,ribboned neck, shells and mother of pearl buttons is a piece of history from the MacKenzie-Childs era when Victoria and Richard MacKenzie-Childs owned and designed at the factory in Aurora up until 2001. Currently, this pattern and shape is not in production and has been retired for some time, so this piece is very collectible.

MacKenzie-Childs factory sits upon the Cayuga Lake, one of the Finger Lakes in Upstate NY that spans 50 miles long. The glassware, when Victoria & Richard were owners and the only designers prior to 2001, did all the artwork onsite, then the actual painting of the glass was done in Ohio by trained M-C artists in factories with glass kilns. After painting and firing several times (the glass had to be fired many times for the gold and platinum were fired at a different temperature than the glass paints, and the decals etc) the product would be shipped back to the Aurora factory for final completion, ribbons, shells, buttons, etc. The completed product would then be packed and shipped out to retailers from Aurora.

This Pine Scent bottle has been handpainted on the entire bottle with painterly stripes, gold painted dots, then a real pine cone, shells, mother of pearl buttons and wired ribbon accenting the surface.

Bottle measures 8" tall and 3 1/2" diameter- bottle is octagonal in shape making a unique home decor accent.

Victoria & Richard designed glass to complement the pottery dishes they loved dearly. Their fanciful, witty and charming patterns flowed easily onto glass and it came about and took off just when the fire broke out at the Aurora factory in the late 90's.

This is an older piece, from 1991 from the date on the logo. The pattern has been retired for years now and very hard to find pieces. A true memento of history to display or use, keep or give as a gift.

Hand wash, due to hand-painting and blown glass.

ALL of my M-C items in my online store, unless stated otherwise, were hand-painted and made from the period when Victoria and Richard were owners and worked at the factory.
