    Good for you,
    Thank-you both for your kind observations. I forgot to mention the crystal stopper in the finely woven wicker piece. It’s such a nice surprise. Even though it’s small, I love the fact that I got such a great deal on it. There has been another wicker bottle listed for $500 but that’s far too rich for me. I just happened to see this on auction and nobody else bid on it. I think it was $27! Such luck I never have. Even if the stopper is stuck. I think I can squirt a little lube on it.

    As for the porcelain piece; the sterling silver top is cork-lined. Very nicely done.

    More Marcel Franck atomizers. The big one on the left is 31/2" tall at the shoulder.
    31/2" wide. Very heavy crystal. I don't remember what I said before but I think
    this company has been around since the 1900's or so. These both look very old.
    The small one is 21/2" at the shoulder.

    They are all gorgeous! Interestingly, I have a Devilbiss humidifier which dates from the early 60’s I believe, glass and bakelite. So they made functional items too I guess.

    Cazaubon, I didn't know they made other items like that, or that they were in business for so long. Fascinating. I'm so happy you're enjoying the collection.
