This is a wonderful marriage of a beautiful intaglio stopper and a black crystal Czechoslovakian perfume bottle. The stopper is almost a perfect fit. If it were the mate it would have fit perfectly as these were hand sanded to fit PERFECT, and with a half twist the stopper would stay in place. This stopper which, is gorgeous, does not move in the neck of the bottle. The stopper is perfect and heavy crystal with a lovely lady and cherub. This is not one of the reproductions. The work in this is just like a piece of art. The stopper could be a Hoffman stopper, and it looks as though there is a butterfly on the flower, which would make it an Ingram stopper. Really pretty. The bulbous black bottom is in very good condition with a few tiny, minor flea bites on the inside of the neck, and I'm only saying that to be real precise, as they are so small I could not photograph them.
The geometric cut crystal bottom is not marked, but it is an obvious 1920's-30's Czechoslovakian bottle. If a perfume bottle came in a "set" only one of the pieces had to be marked for export, so that is why you will find some of the bottles unmarked. But I know Czechoslovakian bottles WELL and this is not a reproduction. There is some scratches on the bottom which is typical of any bottle of this age. If you turn the stopper just a specific way it will "catch" and stay, but it is a marriage...and a happy one!! The bottle with the stopper is 6" tall and the bottom part is 3" wide.
Insurance is your option! We wrap well~
Thank you for stopping into "Time in a Bottle", and I hope you will take time to look at my other Czechoslovakian perfume bottles along with many other vanity items such as compacts, purses and mirrors.
