Surviving from the second half of the 19th century, this hand-blown cobalt glass barber bottle features a hand-painted white enamel floral motif. Simple, delicate, and an absolutely hypnotizing hue that ranges from deep, rich midnight to a somewhat moodier cousin of Yves Klein blue, depending on the light.

Known as “smalt” when ground as a pigment, cobalt glass is prepared with a cobalt compound in a glass melt. With the earnest examples dating back to 2000 BCE, cobalt smalt glass became a popular material in 19th century European industrial design.

Perfect as a bud vase, or on its own. 

American, 1890
