Such a unique piece of Cross Bottle Guy work, inspired by the beautiful antique Ball Ideal Mason jar vessel it sits atop. Found while hand sourcing other bottles for our art, this Ball Ideal Mason jar stuck out as a beautiful piece that needed to be displayed. Several options ran across the head of Cross Bottle Guy, but he settled on this one, making full use of the jar and glass lid.
 
With the beautiful aqua blue hue of the lid of the jar as its center, this cross is composed of our extra large multi-faceted Swedish teardrop crystals, and accented by our smaller hand-cut teardrop prisms, and Russian octagonal crystals. It's a unique, absolutely one of a kind piece that is large enough to stand alone by itself, or be the centerpiece of any Cross Bottle Guy collection.
 
Sealed for eternity, the cross is married to the jar with our stoic metal work finished in our signature mercerized rust patina.

Hand forged, this beautiful and large metal cross is one of only six that we were able to procure. Each slightly different than the other, there is a wonderful soul to each of these stunning open fretwork metal crosses. Highly detailed on the front only, the cross measures just over four inches tall, nearly twice the size of our incredibly popular pewter antediluvian rosary crosses. This antique paean to Christ, was likely the effort of an amateur metal smith, but the tremendous overall presence of this stunning cross couldn't be more perfect for rough/luxe mix that we have established with our handmade art here at Cross Bottle Guy.
 
Distinctive. Rare. Evocative.
 
Forever married to a beautifully hazy, antique bottle with a stunning silhouette, clear but with a beautiful ghostly patina on the inside. This unique bottle is banded by two of our solder collars, accented by a beautiful antique olive wood rosary, and finished in our signature mercerized rust patina.

Here's an oldie but a goodie from the Cross Bottle Guy vault. This crystal cross creation is one of our absolute favorites, but is rare due to the difficulty we have in finding the stunning flat back, hand-cut oval crystals that make this unique and beautifully refractive cross.

Finished in our signature, mercerized rust patina, it really is a remarkable piece perfect for your growing Cross Bottle Guy collections.
  
Forever married to its unearthed vessel, which has a wonderful and almost ghostly interior hue. A wash of milky whites and grays, this antique bottle is banded by two of our solder collars and accented by an antique rosary of black oval handmade beads.

The second of our coronal mirror series, we're calling this one Corona Radiata, inspired by Roman Emperors' crowns and laurel wreath combinations. Borrowed from the Greeks and Spartans, the Romans used crowns and wreaths of laurel or olive leaves to crown as a token of divinity, grand reward, and triumphal decoration.

Reflective. Refractive. Resplendent.
 
Recreated in crystals, this corona and wreath was reimagined with 39 individually hand placed refractive and fiery vintage prisms, and finished with our signature mercerized rust patina. Hand-cut and hand-polished teardrops, Russian octagonal crystals in two sizes, and Austrian ovals in two sizes seamlessly hug the edge of this perfectly round vintage double sided mirror, we found while digging through boxes at an estate in Delaware.
 
Forever married to the perfect bottle base, this tiara topped mirror sits perched on an embossed antique aqua seltzer bottle, with a hazy inner fog of smoke gray and milky white. Thick, heavy glass with seeded imperfections, and benign inner fractures to the handsome silhouette add to the overall patina and charm of this special piece. Banded in one of our solder collars, and graced by an antique beaded rosary and Italian medallion, this one of a kind piece is sure to be a stand out in your collection.

The perfect piece for the princess you know, the princess you are, or the princess you've dreamed of being, this example of Cross Bottle Guy bottle art is perfect for your vanity table, dressing room or boudoir, or simply as a piece that will reflect the shining artistry of our cross bottles.

Please note there are very slight imperfections in the mirrors as they are vintage. However, these do not interfere with viewing, and we think, add to the rough/luxe look we curate here at Cross Bottle Guy.

We happened across very few of these rare oddly shaped crystals at an estate sale, and knew that we could use them in our cross bottle art. A few variations were played with until we came up with this new design for 2016, which is limited. The first of these unique cross shapes actually sold from the studio before we could put it on the site. Made from our Russian octagonal prisms creating arms of a medieval inspired cross with this large pentagonal crystal, and finished in our signature mercerized rust patina, this is an interesting piece perfect to pepper into a growing collection.
 
Forever married to an antique bitters bottle with a beautiful, masculine silhouette and graced by one of our solder collars, and a vintage rosary with Guardian Angel medallion this limited edition creation is sure to delight.
