SALE Take a look at this very cool Jeweled Lid Smoky Grey Vintage Glass Perfume Bottle Marked Holm Spray on the bottom of the glass, and Western Germany on the underside of the top. The lid, which I'm pretty sure had an atomizer, is a brass or gold tone flower with 7 prong set deep pink faceted marquise sstones, and one large round brilliant faceted stone in the center. As I mentioned, on the underneath side, there is a foil like sticker that reads "Western Germany." The lid is app. 2 1/8" across the flower, and it's just lovely.
The glass bottle, which is a dark smoky gray color has 6 outer points, like a star, and then 6 smaller points in between those. The way the glass is designed, it looks as if it's one large faceted stone itself. The bottom has the marquise shaped foil sticker that reads "holm Spray 500/7, Made in U.S.A., Chartley, Mass.
This lovely perfume bottle is 4" tall to the top of the round brilliant stone. I have read that this sticker is attributed to the T. J. Holmes Company, Inc., famous for the patent of a perfume atomizer in 1876. However, these atomizers were not promoted until the 1930's, which is most likely the era when this perfume bottle was made, in the 30's or 40's.
What a beautiful piece of glass for your vanity tray this perfume bottle will be! There is one very small chip off just "below" one of the points. Where it is, you don't see it, because all the points are intact, so you have to feel it to know it is there. Otherwise, just not having the atomizer is the only issue, and those can be found pretty easily. I love it just as it is without the atomizer actually! With the extra bling these marquise stones bring to the piece, it's just a fabulous find. If you are a bottle collector, particularly a perfume or scent bottle collector, this is a given that you need it for your collection!
