In perfect condition is this lovely, and heavy commercial perfume bottle by "Ciro". It is the largest version of the commercial perfume bottle by Ciro. It use to hold the scent "Danger" which came out in 1936 out of Paris, France. Ciro also had an establishment in New York as well. This large size is said to be made of Baccarat Crystal.
This is the smaller size 2 1/4" tall and 1 3/8" wide, but not the smallest size! I know it comes in 4 or 5 different sizes. It is clean high quality glass with a hard plastic top. It is in great condition with no nicks or cracks. This is a small perfume bottle but this is not the mini size. There is even a smaller size than this one.
It still has the gold lettering on the black "outer" stopper, which states, "Danger" and "Ciro". The black top is made of a heavy black plastic. The top covers a pretty inner glass stopper that holds the perfume in, although this bottle is empty of it's Danger perfume. It is a wonderful bottle in perfect shape.
The Commercial perfume bottle has a great a geometrical shape. The quality glass is polished off on the bottom. I love the shape and the quality. Very cool commercial Bottle by Ciro that had that Art Deco vibe going on, with its straight, clean lines, geometric shape.
You can find this bottle in several of the perfume bottle books including "Commercial Perfume Bottles" by Jacquelyn Jones North who says this about the bottles you see here. (Pg. 128)
She notes: "The inspiration for Ciro's "Danger" bottle was a Baccarat vase displayed at the French Exposition of 1936. "Danger" was introduced in the United States in 1938. The large bottle (in the picture) is a "Baccarat" bottle and designed by " Brosse."
I would love to see the vase! Some of the larger sizes in this commercial perfume bottle are made of Baccarat crystal. This one is high quality glass but not crystal.
