    Thanks for your kind remarks! I had to wait a long time for the Djedi. I tried to hold off buying for a while at least.

    A pink glass or crystal Art Deco, stoppered bottled. Probably Czech. 1930's or so. No markings.

    Hednic, I appreciate that so much! Thank-you.
    These last green series make me think of how much I loved the Emerald City sequence in "The Wizard of Oz". I really loved that movie. It also was filled with great Art Deco design elements.

    This appears to be old. Enamel over very delicate metal. French? Missing a cork?

    It's hard to tell but inside the white flowers are sparkling Marcasite crystals.

    The amber bottle has a perfect stopper. The sterling chatelaine has a screw top.

    Thank-you and I am glad your wife is enjoying the collection, too. I waited quite a while for one of these Italian latticino bottles which was affordable and nice enough to be desirable. There are a lot of variations on this theme. It's hard to tell the copies from the good ones until you get them in your hands. I think this is a nice one, though. Glad you like it. It is amazingly complex!

    I can't tell how old this is or where it's from. It's comical- sort of an "I Dream of Jeanie" bottle. Very theatrical. There are numbers on the bottom. No clue what they mean. Gold painted ceramic and enameled brass. About 7" tall.

    Oh, my, kumquat! How wonderful!

    The latest vintage I bought was a bottle of Elegance by D'Orsay from the 1940s. The box was a little worn, and the bottle open, but otherwise in great shape.

    Thank you! This one was hard to find a real example. They make lots of modern copies in this style.
    Almost all of these are from Ebay. Some from RubyLane Antiques website. A few gifts. I'm afraid I peruse Ebay too often using a few favorite key words.

    Hand painted porcelain or ceramic. No markings. Maybe 1930's-1950's. Maybe French.
