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.

Five brilliant, hand-cut crystals, originally part of a French Empire era chandelier. Flat backed, and hand polished, these beautiful crystals have a sort of South African influence to them, with a bit of a Moorish cut. Incredibly refractive, and stunningly fiery, these crystals have come together beautifully with our Russian octagonal prisms, and centered on a beautiful rosette crystal with solder center.

Finished in our signature mercerized rust, the piece forever marries a beautiful antique embossed bottle with a statuesque and feminine silhouette. This one-of-a-kind piece is sure to fit well into any collection, or be quite the stand-out mixed with other pieces from your home!

Crystal and crosses are what we do here at Cross Bottle Guy, it's out moniker! But we often find special pieces just begging to be married to our wonderful collection of antique bottles, including beautiful specimen shells like this one. 

A stunning Noble Pectin shell in subdued purple hues of amethyst, plum, and aubergine was the perfect top for this antique perfumers bottle with a striking silhouette and decorative embossing. A lovely haze and iridescence, similar to carnival glass.

Banded by a thick edge of our hand-hewn solder, and finished in our gorgeous signature mercerized rust patina, this little beauty is sure to bring a smile to your face and add boundless character to your Cross Bottle Guy collections.

We love using these incredibly refractive, hand-cut, flat backed French pendalogue crystals in our handmade Cross Bottle Guy work, but they're increasingly harder and harder to find. Large and fiery, these mesmerizing prisms are dazzling with a lovely feminine shape that always makes for the most beautiful finished work.

Centered here on an antique German octagonal crystal, and accented by our brilliant and smallest Russian octagonal crystals, this gorgeous cross is finished in our signature mercerized rust patina, and forever married to an antique embossed aqua pharmacy bottle. Inspired by the delicate and intricate patterns of lace, this Celtic Cross inspired starburst collection of crystals is new for Cross Bottle Guy.

The handsome silhouette of this bottle is the perfect companion for the feminine shape of the crystal cross which tops it. A beautiful thick, clear glass, finished with one of our solder collars - this lovely piece of handmade work is sure to be a stand out in your growing collection!

These mesmerizing antique, hand-cut and multifaceted cat eye oval crystals are incredibly difficult for us to find, and when we ran out of them, we were sure we'd never find them again. But we have! A VERY limited number of these beauties have been hand sourced, and we are delighted to be working with them again, and bringing them back to the Cross Bottle Guy collectors who love them.

Five brilliantly refractive German cat eye ovals pair up with our Russian and German octagonal prisms of two sizes to create this lovely, tall piece of Cross Bottle Guy handmade art!  
Married forever through the use of heavy patinated solder, finished in our signature mercerized rust patina to a ribbed bottle with a uniquely curved and ribbed silhouette, bearing an inner patina of milky whites and grays, this entire handmade piece of art is unique, and a real show stopper!
