    Thanks, Sea Roses! It's so great to hear from you. I am so happy you enjoyed looking through the collection. I'm slowing down a great deal because I just have too much stuff. Here and there an item might slip by, though!

    You must be over the moon with this addition to your collection! The bottles and box look like they're in immaculate condition, colors fresh and crisp - must have been stored in a drawer and kept safe and out of the sun.

    Wow, Kumuat, I've never seen anything like those DeVilbiss, with their stemware bases. How many inches tall are they?

    And from back in this thread: that bottle with Faberge etched in its glass stopper floored me. It's marked Flambeau, right? I only know Flambeau as a cheapie drugstore scent from Faberge... did they actually made it as a parfum at some point in time?

    Cook.bot, yes, the bottles are about 6&1/2" high and the box is just over 8".
    These were very popular in their day and luckily many were made and many survive.
    The Faberge 'Flambeau' is parfum. I need to check on that bottle. I haven't seen it in a while.

    Dark amethyst satin glass. 4" tall by 1&1/4" label reads:
    "Lily of the Valley" Bacorn CO, Elmira NY
    This is pressed glass. The dauber has been ground down. Sadly.
    I didn't realize it before. And a small chip on the top.
    At least it was not expensive. This is circa 1900.

    Still very nice. The bottle doesn't look old in a way...

    Thank-you, Bonnette. It is fun to imagine the contents.

    Thanks, TLS, yes, it's still fresh in appearance. A strong glass form. There was another that sort of matched it which I decided against
    so that seemed like it was from the same era. These things often come out of the blue.

    Clear blue cut crystal with dauber intact. About 8"x 3".
    Presumably Czechoslovakia- 1930's although bottom is polished smooth and no mark is visible so far.

    Here is the new spot in the cabinet.

    Small French "boule" turquoise opaline glass.
    Gilt sterling top embossed with a star, a vine and assorted decoration.
    Bottom polished smooth. Unsigned. Covered in gilt stars.
    This would have been carried in a purse. 1880's, likely Paris.
    This came from England. 2" across 3" tall. Glass stopper
    included. Closes with a satisfying snap.

    Thank you all for your kind observations. One thing I forgot to say is that this has substantial weight for such a small piece. It fits perfectly in the palm of one's hand. I'm so glad you are enjoying the thread.

    Thank- you, Bonnette! An interesting thing about this one is how sharp it feels.
    You really know it is cut crystal, not pressed. That makes it very sparkly, too.
