    Kumquat, your collection makes me GREEN with envy! Lovely bottles!

    Thank you both! Primrose, I take that as a high compliment! Green is one of my favorite colors, too!

    So as not to waste a space, I am posting another pic of my new cameo bottle.

    Mercury glass with silver top. Probably late 1800's, early 1900's.

    I love these bottles, Kumquat. I particularly love this last bottle with the blue striped glass. There is something very alluring about it.

    1800's lay-down, etched with gold leaf inlay.





    This would have had rose oil or similar in it.

    Thanks, Mimi, I forgot to say, the blue striped one is tiny, only about 2.5 inches long.

    Did you just get that? I think I was watching it too. Good job I didn't bid.

    A Moser- probably. Enameled decoration.



    The bottom is ground perfectly smooth and etched with #37.

    This etched piece has a ground stopper that has a '9' inscribed on the bottom of the piece to match.





    Yet another English cut crystal piece.

    More beautiful bottles! I hadn't stopped by in while, but glad I did. You know how I feel about the blue ones ... they take my breath away!

    My mom has a frosted glass powder jar similar to yours. I'll have to take a picture of it one of these days for you to see.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    That would be fun to see. I have included those as a little hint of how I use them in my collection. There are mirrors and other dressing table items, too. I really am running out of room. I don't want to become an actual hoarder. Since I am a painter as well as a photographer, I'm hoping to include these in some still-life paintings in the future.

    These are stunning and the thread needs a bump so all of us newbies can gawk! Thanks for sharing your collection. I'd love to see them all together in display, if you have a pic of that.

    Thanks, Danieq! I do have a few posts showing most of the collection in my cabinets and on my shelves. It's kind of large so it won't fit all together in one shot.

    Here's one I think I may have forgotten to show. It's a 'lay down' flask, probably late 1800's with gilt applied. It has rose oil still inside and the cork is broken off in the neck.
