Ricksecker Perfume Bottle with Cherub

A perfume bottle by Theodore Ricksecker who is credited with being the first to establish a perfumery in America around 1868. This sweet bottle is decorated with a cherub who appears to be ringing a triangle. The image may be a transfer and is highlighted with gold and white enamel. The glass is a bristol-type glass and the interior is a pure white. On the back of the bottle it reads 'Ricksecker Perfumer New York' and on the bottom it reads 'Made in Austria'. It is 8 1/2" high by around 1 5/8" in diameter. As Ricksecker continued the perfume business into the 20's, this bottle could date anywhere from the late 1800s to the 1920s.

Please note the wear to the gold on the handles and the top. Also, there is discoloration in various places on the bottle, especially note a slight pink colored discoloration about 1/2" long on the reverse side at the top.

Please email me with any questions. Thanks for looking!
