The perfume bottle is heart shaped with a ruffle in frosted glass. The stopper is of Bakelite and in the form of the feathered end of an arrow.
This Chi Chi perfume bottle is the largest of the 3 sizes standing at 5 1/4 inches. There was also a mini and a 4 inch bottle.
It is excellent condition with about 1/2 of the aged perfume left in the perfume bottle. No chips or cracks. The heart shaped bottle is clear with the frosted glass ruffle base and bakelite top. This was a war time bottle and bakelite and lucite were used rather than metal tops. All metals were going to the war effort, except for sterling silver which was too soft.
