    So many amazing, gorgeous bottles! When I think about the mass-produced industrial designs we have now I see how much things have changed.

    Thank-you both for your comments. I agree that the wonderment of artistry is never ending when it comes to these antique vessels.

    This sweet little Czechoslovakian piece is probably from the 1930's. About 4" tall.
    Pink crystal, cut glass with brass, enamel and faux jewel embellishments. I'm not certain if it says anything on the bottom or not.
    The dauber is intact. Modified ziguarat pattern.

    Thank-you, Dear. I'm having fun with it. I have other Marcel Franck bottles but these are quite different from those.

    Yes. Thanks, Hednic. The gold one doesn't have the filigree, sadly. The top two are great examples of Art Deco. They are small and fit in the hand easily. The other one is larger (4") very heavy carved crystal. MF did a lot of heavy crystal and this is my first good example.

    A French cobalt blue heavy glass with
    gilded paint applied in a vine pattern.
    Approx 5" high.

    Hard to see but but there is an
    etched number '45' on both the bottom
    and the stopper. (You'll just have
    to take my word for it.) This shows the
    stopper matches the bottle. Circa 1880's

    Green cut glass. Marked "Made in Japan". 7" high
    Dauber intact. This looks like a copy of Czechoslovakian
    Art Deco. I don't know if it's 1930's or 1950's.

    I love these! Has there ever been a more beautiful color combination than cobalt blue and gold? And the delicacy of that green stopper in the pressed glass bottle, oh my.

    Thank-you! I am really pleased with this cobalt one, too. I don't have one like it, except for one close in red. The bottle with the stopper is cut glass, I am pretty sure. It's interesting, the design is not symmetrical, although you might not be able to see it that well. The squiggle on the left is quite different from the one on the right.

    Gorgeous. And looks sort of Moroccan, or like a Persian mosaic. Just gorgeous.

    Thanks, Cook.bot. You're right, I hadn't thought of it but there's definitely that influence there. So 'Arabian Nights' and 'Taj Mahal'!

    Nice to hear from you, Cazaubon. I'm glad you like it as much as I do. It's a real corker. I just couldn't pass it by.

    This is supposed to be a malachite bottle made by Ingrid (Czech). I would like to verify this but I don't know how to go about it.
    Here's a link with a couple of bottles exactly like yours.
    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/165296248795913582/
    The difference being, they have a stoppers.
    Does your have a stopper someplace ?
    Check around . Lot's of times converted pieces might have the extra piece stored somewhere.
    Also, lot's of times converted pieces became that way because the missing piece was either lost or broke.
    Check around. Ask questions.

    One great way in knowing the date of a piece are the patent's that exists.
    In jewelry , you can check a few things out .
    It's easy too.
    Take the piece of jewelry and just turn it over.
    Look at the hardware on the back that you use to hold it in place, pin it , hang it too your body or clothes.
    Here's a good patent time line in jewelry to know
    Fasteners. Here's a link . It's Ruby Lane's ;
    https://www.realorrepro.com/article/...ooch-fasteners

    So why am I mentioning this ?
    Simple, jewelry breaks after time when worn.
    So it was an acceptable practice to repair older pieces with newer hardware.
    The catch is, pun intended , identifying older pieces that have been repaired.
    It's not hard to do either .It's just common sense. Does this go with that.

    Any nude is a very very desirable that most collectors want.
    And what you have is no exception.
    I would suggest for you to see if you could find the stopper , for one like your with stopper sold for over ,
    get this, ready, $800. That's pretty nice.

    Here's something I do when I enter an estate sale.
    1. I go to see if they left any flatware in the drawers in the kitchen.
    Sometimes you can find sterling . It's getting harder and harder these days to make that happen,
    but if you do, then the estate handler most likely left other things .
    It's a good indicator .
    Remember this though, not all sterling was marked .925 or sterling . The .925 mark started in 1906 I believe .
    Before that companies had their own systems , and not all of that was marked .
    2. I go to the bedrooms and look for their perfume or cologne collection.
    It's a great identifier of what else might be lurking in those old house if they have the good perfume .
    I was just at an estate sale. I myself picked up a Nina Atomizer for $2.00 .
    I also picked up two Qbert pencil boxes . Dated 1983 . price paid .50 cents a piece .
    I also picked up a pink conch shell vase . Date , Patent Pending which placed it in the early 1930's . price paid $5.00
    It is a Catalina California piece C353 . Excellent condition.

    So why am I writing all this. Easy, remember it's all easy.
    I found everyone of these pieces in the This must be junk boxes
    Nina atomizer and box, easy $10 resale.
    Vase, easy resale $15 to $20.
    Qbert ,Made in Pennsylvania pencil box , get this , easy $12 to $20.
    Remember I paid .50 cents for just one.

    I am mentioning all this for I want you to dig.
    Dig where they won't .
    You'll find what your looking for , and you'll find what they don't.

    Thanks, JBS1, this is a favorite of mine, too. Rare and showy. I got lucky.Thats a good link showing beautiful perfume bottles. I recognized one ofmy own pictures! As for the question of stoppers, I agree, they are preferred.
    I admit I am confused at your saying something about my bottles missing their stoppers as all of those you show either have stoppers, tops or are atomizers.
    I do have a couple that are missing their tops and those I got cheap. I sometimes use them as flower holders in still-life settings. Sadly, stoppers are the first things
    to get lost or damaged. As a rule, I avoid bottles with damaged or missing daubers. They bother me. Atomizers can squeak by without tops.

    Thank-you for your interest, Hednic! I'm so glad you like it.
    I am like that with my collection of American Brilliant Period cut glass.
    If there's chips, I am not interested.
    It can be difficult detecting the chips.
    You have to actually sit a lightly run your fingers over the whole piece.
    There's so many cuts. With pitchers as I am sure you know, most of the chips are on the pouring lip.
    The lip hits the glass your pouring into.
    Ice cream trays are another one that can have problems . The cold,the spoon.
    The really nice thing is that the prices for these pieces of art have come down so much.
    There's a facets of reasons, but if you like glass, it's a buyers dream.
    I am a huge fan of Elegant Stem Ware. Cambridge namely, but others too.
    The nice thing about artistic glass perfume bottles , is that the prices are still good, and will continue to be.
    I have a number of sterling perfume bottles. Nothing as gorgeous as your Blue Aurene , amazing piece you have,
    but I have namely Mexican ones .
    I love placing them in between my cut glass . The silver, the glass and some colored lighting , the beauty is relaxing.
    I also weave Wedding Cake jewelry between them.

    I agree with your choices in glass, Czech pieces between the 1920's and 1930's are the most amazing.
    You have amazing taste and knowledge .
    I look forward to more of your uploads.
    Thank you.
