This little glass dog figure is a vintage perfume bottle. The dog is wearing "striped" pants and a "plaid" jacket over a vest, at least those are the visions that come to my mind with the patterns pressed in the clear glass. There is a bit of his painted red tie showing which is the only paint other than his facial paint. His hat is the screw on cap and appears to be made of bakelite. It is textured to look like a straw hat and has a colorful paper band around it. The back of the band is the label which reads; Gardenia - Lioret - Distributor - Jersey City and then its hard to make out the rest other than Fl.Oz Net. Under the lid is a hole for dispensing the perfume. On the bottom of his feet it appears to read; Made in U.S.A. and Des. Pat. App. For.
It measures about 3 ¼” tall and is in very good condition with minimal wear to the existing paint. I don’t know if he originally had more painted areas but I tend to think not. The back and bottom edge of the hat band are slightly faded or discolored.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
