This old cologne bottle is made of a very pretty, green satin glass with a frosted clear glass base that appears white with the satin finish. It has a brass screw on cap with a screw-on, flowered knob. The flower is made of faceted clear and green flower petals that are wired to a backplate. I can’t tell for sure but the petals may be made of a hard plastic like Lucite rather than glass. On the bottom side of the flower it is stamped; Made in Western Germany. A fabric covered atomizer bulb screws to the cap. On the top of the base is an original foiled paper Irice Import label but the label is worn. I believe it reads; I.W.Rice Company – Made in Portugal. I believe this is from the 1950’s.
It measures about 5 ½” to the top of the flower, the bulbous center measure about 2 5/8” in diameter and the base measures about 2 ¼” square. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no chips or cracks in the glass. There should be a thin plastic tube inside but that is missing. The bulb appears to be an old one but I don’t know if it is the original one. The threads don’t always tighten up well and the inside threads might be stripped. Also, the fabric is faded and discolored where it screws into the lid. It is empty but the fragrance is still strong when the lid is off.
