    You may be wondering about this 'Moser' I mention. Here is an article about the company that made these pieces.

    Thank-you, TLS & Cyn! I'm happy to have some new fans. I haven't added any new photos for a while, so this is a little catch up.

    I know these are mostly female marketed perfume bottles and atomizers, but since you're a neighbor (sort of) I decided to look through the thread when I saw it at the top of a forum. Wow. Very impressive collection! Kind of frilly for my personal taste, but I can sure see the beauty in them. Is the Head Over Heels bottle hard to come by? I would love to find that one for my daughter. It would make a great gift. She's my princess...

    And never mind. LOL A quick eBay search answered that question.

    But "thank you". Without this thread I probably would have never know that bottle existed.

    Impressive additions to an already great looking and fabulously fragrant collection. Those vintage bottles are almost as grandiose as the classic scents contained. Thanks for sharing the pictures- especially the vintage Caron and the various Moser crystal vials.

    Thanks for your comments, Ken & Tjarksd. Yes, I'm all over the place. Some are cheap, some fancy. I just like the different designs.

    Some new acquisitions. The gilded metal one may be really old or may be from the 1960's. It's marked 'Germany' and something else I can't make out. The glass dauber is intact.

    The porcelain? piece which has applied gilt, is probably old, maybe late 1800's. I think this is called "Mt. Washington Cameo glass" or something along those lines. If anyone knows something, I'd appreciate the information.

    I don't know anything about the round one but it seems to have gold sparkles and a pewter neck.

    Marcel Franck in silver filigree (France). Victorian cranberry or ruby crystal "cut to clear" with silver repoussée top. Sterling silver "match safe & striker" kitty.

    I appreciate that! I took the last few with an iPad, believe it or not.
    Sorry about the re run. One of those has been seen before. I'll try not to repeat myself so much.

    "Lubin Parfumeur Paris" on the back in raised letters on the glass jar. On the seal on the bottom looks like either TT or FT then =68 so I don't know if that's a price or a date. No idea on the age. It could be just an old fashioned label on a not very old bottle.

    The cranberry glass piece might be very old, Victorian, I think. Etched and guilded. Luckily, I didn't pay much for it. Probably because the sprayer is gone.

    The 'Sabino' on the left was supposed to be original but turned out to be a copy. The 'Coty Complice' is the real deal from the deco era.

    This is etched and maybe French? Baccarat?
    Edit- Someone on Ebay has this pattern listed as 'Bohemian' which means Czech. 1890-1920's
