    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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?
