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. I have this in three sizes but this is the largest and it is beautiful and in great shape. I read where the crystal bottles of this were made by Baccarat. So this could be a Baccarat Perfume Bottle made for Ciro to house the "Danger" perfume.
It still has the gold lettering on the black "outer" stopper, which states, "Danger" and "Ciro". The black top is made of Bakelite or a very heavy resin. Bakelite would be the most likely material at that time. It is heavy but not glass and has an inner cork lining. There is an inner glass dauber which is covered by the black stopper. It is a wonderful bottle in super shape. Quality perfume bottle.
The Commercial perfume bottle has a great a geometrical shape. This one is striking standing at 4" tall. Crystal bottle Polished off on the bottom and no seams. I love the shape and the quality. Very cool commercial Perfume Bottle by Ciro.
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) "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 by Baccarat and the small bottle by Brosse."
I found this information about the shape very interesting!
I have both bottles so I thought I would show you the comparison in size. The larger one is heavy as it is crystal, but not marked Baccarat. Actually the Baccarat Circle Logo was not applied until 1938.
