    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.

    Shannon company is an Irish company but this was made in China.
    The company has been around since 1976. It's a quality reproduction
    of a Deco design from the 1930's-40's. Very heavy crystal. Chrome fittings.
    3 1/2" high at the shoulder. 2" square. Top is 1" square. I don't think it would hold
    much perfume! Not expensive.

    That certainly IS a quality reproduction! The Deco and Moderne periods are my favorites, and this crystal tower is superb.

    Thanks, Bonnette. I'm very pleased with this one. It must weigh at least a pound and I love these that are "prismatic" in the sunlight.

    Here’s an emerald green cut glass atomizer by ‘I.W. Rice & co.’ Made in Japan. I need to find out if this is 1930’s or 1950’s. I love the intaglio heron in the elegant dark top and the way it’s surrounded by sparkling light green rhinestones. 4&1/2” tall by 3&1/2” wide.
    Squeeze bulb needs to be replaced.

    Thanks so much, Cazaubon, I like it, too. I thought it was so unusual.

    I found some information on it and it seems that this is post-war (II) since it's from Japan and has plastic tubing.

    Gorgeous bottle. That company started importing perfumes in 1906, so it's indeed tough to date this one - I've seen that label on 50s Siamese jewelry, but of course that doesn't mean anything in terms of actual provenance...the rhinestone settings and intaglio look 50-ish to me, but again, who knows? It's a thing of beauty, whatever the date!

    Thanks for the input, Bonnette. I'm glad you got a kick out of it. I wasn't aware Irice was into jewelry, too. Fascinating.

    I can't really say how old this is. I think it's a clever reproduction of
    an Art Deco era piece, but probably more recently made- maybe
    1960's. It's about 7" tall by 2" wide. Black and white glass.
    Decorated with rocks and beads.

    Charming. I think you're right about the era. It almost looks like a well done one-off...does the base have any markings?

    That's what disappointed me. One sticker says 'made in Taiwan' the other small sticker is illegible. Thank goodness I didn't pay much.

    Shoot. Well, it's delightful, provenance or not!
