About Us"TIME IN A BOTTLE" specializes in vintage and antique Vanity items from long ago. Perfume bottles, (my passion), hand-mirrors, frames, powder bowls, French boxes, compacts and antique purses, unique sewing items, ink wells, salt cellars, jewelry, cigar and cigarette holders are just some of our special, unique and rare treasures.
Recently we began adding Vintage and Antique postcards and other paper collectibles such as Lithographs, Victorian Trade Cards & Die Cuts. We love antique buttons as well. Antique Doll accessories is another new item we are collecting for you. So stop a while, relax, and check out "Time in a Bottle's" treasures...Enjoy!
We are always looking for crystal such as Lalique and Baccarat. French Porcelain like LIMOGES and SEVRES can usually be found here. Rich Enamels such as Champleve, Cloisonne, and Guilloche will usually grace our pages. We love Sterling Silver. There should be something for everyone in this pretty and fun-filled shop! Condition is always important to us, as we know it is most important to you.
VICTORIAN, ART NOUVEAU AND ART DECO are favorite eras and we strive to find items from 1800's through 1940's; a few earlier pieces and a few later. Later items will be highly collectible pieces such as Estee Lauder solid perfumes and compacts, jewelry and vintage clothes.

Unfortunately, I have to place a disclaimer on any perfume. Sadly, I've had perfume exchanged out before, then returned, and a few returns for the perfume because the 60 year old perfume is not quite up to snuff, or how someone remembers it. Therefore, I sell perfume bottles and some have perfume, some even unopened perfume. I'm sorry to have to do this. I understand that scent is a strong memory maker but I can't guarantee what I have not made or know the purity of the ingredients. Thank you for your kind understanding.
