This cut glass Czechoslovakian perfume bottle is a “mini dresser bottle”, originally promoted in the catalogs as inexpensive gifts or party favors. These bottles are as beautifully cut as the larger perfumes, and often imitate the shapes and cuts of their larger cousins. A bottle like this one, but in blue, can be seen on page 95 of Kocken’s “Perfume Bottles for Purse and Dresser: From Czechoslovakia 1920s-1930s.” Kocken refers to it as an Aristo bottle sold by Marshall Fields. It was made in the 1930s. The stopper is facetted and includes a dauber. This bottle is not marked on the base.
This comes from the estate of Phil’s mom, who was a passionate collector of American Brilliant cut glass and other fine art glass.
SIZE: This little bottle is 2” tall. Diameter at the base is just under 1” and at its widest a little under 1 1/2".
CONDITION: We see one tiny nick on a point; otherwise this bottle appears to have no chips, cracks or other issues in the glass.
The bottom is marked "Made in Czechoslovakia" but it is very light and impossible to photograph. Please see the last picture.
