    Thanks, Castorpollux. Here are a few more;





    This is very large (6 1/2" high x 4 3/4" wide), more for decoration.
    It has a pattern of ginko leaves on it.
    You can barely see the outline of the intact dauber inside.








    This is a 'Moser' type. Covered in enameled decoration.

    This is Czechoslovakian cut glass from around the 1920's-30's.
    I found an all clear version in Miller's book of
    perfume bottles valued at between $1000-2000!
    (I paid about $40)

    Pretty in pink deco bottle. (Sorry, just realized this is a repeat).



    Sterling silver nut-shaped vinagrette.
    The top unscrews and the whole thing can be pinned to a blouse.

    There is a number '3' engraved on both the stopper and the base.
    'Lalique France' is written on the base as well.

    This was 'Made in Austria' and is an art deco piece.



    'I return' or 'I'm baaack' 'Je Reviens' by Worth. Also Lalique.



    A funky mint green hand-painted number from the 30's?

    I finally found a nice piece of silver overlay.
    This one is 'Gorham' English sterling.



    'Elfinware' is porcelain with moss and flowers on everything.
    This pair is done in forget-me-nots.

    This little guy is only about 4" tall.





    It would be nice to have a top for this art glass but I like the vessel.





    Some blown glass.







    The artist's name is on the bottom of this modern English piece, although it is hard to read.

    What wonderful additional to your dreamlike collection of bottles. Is Vaseline glass always that haunting chartreuse? I know nothing about it, but I am intrigued. When is it from?

    I can't help but voyeristically appreciate the little views of your lovely home, too. I just love your whole playful, warmhearted, yet-elegant aesthetic.

    Thank-you, Hillaire & 3nines! You are too kind! I think vaseline glass is some crazy kind that has a chemical in it- it is that bright yellow green you see & it flouresces (sp?) under a black light. Maybe it is uranium or something. I'm not sure. I don't think it's dangerous; at least I hope not!

    What a lovely collection, display and setting! Thank you so much for sharing Kumquat, I am going to pore over these photos in more detail when I have time to revisit this thread from the very beginning. So lovely

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    This new addition came with a round display case. I have it next to some powder boxes.
    This bottle has its original sticker which reads 'Pyramid'.

    hi This is actually Lapis glass named after the stone Lapis Lazuli which was much prized in ancient times the Pharos having costly objects made from it buried with them in their tombs.
    . Malachite is green.

    Hi, are you talking about the green glass one with the woman on top? It doesn't seem to be listed under Heinrich on this website. (Thanks for this website, BTW, I'm joining up!) However, I do have this one I pasted in, with the ivy leaves in the malachite. I haven't photographed it yet.

    Thanks for setting me straight on the malachite/lapis thing. Of course I knew lapis was blue. I don't know why I called it malachite, DOH!

    Do you happen to know how I can get some values assigned to these bottles? You've been most helpful.

    Just hold onto it for a coupke of years, I recently (this year) saw a similar one at an auction and it actually went for about 4000 USD, which is not too shabby I thought it was going for less but it was a great surprise.

    Again, Thank you for sharing such wonderful collection!

    WOW! is there a symbol for fainting? I can't believe I was able to get this one for around $250. I thought it might be worth $1200 or so. It just shows that these things fluctuate wildly.

    Thanks, Mimi! Here's an unsigned cameo glass piece in the style of Gallé.
    The top is silver.
    I'm not sure if I should try to clean it or not.
