    Red face More help ID'ing bottles please :)

    My dear Dad, (knowing well that I'm the vintage fragrance enthusiast) found some assorted bottles at his local European fleamarkets this past weekend. Amongst the odds and sods there are several gems (one of which is the gorgeous unused vintage 15ml Shalimar extrait that he picked up for a fiver, and also a vintage Floris Special 127 boxed sealed bath oil), however I would love some assistance with ID'ing a couple of those bottles that are unmarked...

    In the first picture below, it is the large round glass bottle to the far right that has us stumped... there are NO markings whatsoever, but it is a rather enormous handball-sized flacon that neither of us have seen before.



    In the second photo below we are hoping to ID the huge bottle on the far left, which is shaped a bit like an arched church window.



    Can anyone shed any insights?
    Many thanks in advance!

    Lucky you ... did that relatively huge Ysatis bottle originally contain pure parfum?!
    It's gorgeous!

    Wonderful finds Dimi - unfortunately I can't for the life of me identify the ones you wrote about. To find an unused bottle of Shalimar parfum for a fiver is outstanding. Definitely must go hunting for perfume with you,your Dad and Duckie !
    That big ball glass bottle is quite fabulous too.

    Thanks Duc and Mimi!
    Well, the only possible lead is the "cut crystal" design on the large round bottle... it looks quite similar to the design here:

    Though I could just be guessing there might be a connection.

    Still stumped...

    OH! And Mimi, you are welcome to scavenge with me anytime!

    That spherical bottle reminds me of this - 9th picture ( 2 bottles.) I actually prefer your bottle Dimitri to those !

    Yes, there are similarities Mimi... but I get the idea this one Ive posted is a commercial bottle as there is a rather thick gold cord around the neck.

    It makes it harder that I haven't got them here in front of me, as I might be able to pick up some detail from the bottles or scents themselves. Dad, for all his positives, strains to read ANYTHING with his glasses perched on his nose, and if it aint Chanel Antaeus, he wont recognise it!
