More from Richard W. Bell
This clear Czech perfume bottle is comprised of a multiple number of diamond like patterns in it's body and stopper. The center of the stopper then has an intaglio cut floral pattern of two roses and leaves. The end tip of the body is not just plain but comprised of eight faceted panels and even the foot has beveled rims. Just a nice extra attention to design.
The glass is in excellent minus condition with no cracks, deep scratches or repairs. It is clean and bright with no ugly fogging or white or brown residue. All of those diamond patterns are intact with no chipped/missing tops. You can find as expected and normal some flea bites from a previous owners ring. With inspection you can find some small nicks of 1/32 inch to small chips of 1/8 inch mostly located on the bottom of the body's foot. The interior rim of the bottle's neck is rough with numerous bites to approximately 1/32 inch nicks. On the top of the neck there is a flat, fan shaped chip measuring 1/4 inch at it's widest point and a 3/32 X 1/8 inch chip to the outer rim (left side of photo # 9) of the neck. On an edge rim in the under portion of the short Tiara area of the stopper (right side of photo # 9) there is a tiny grouping of chips approximately 3/16 long X 1/16 inch at widest point. These may have been caused by the hand finish work of beveling & polishing to that area. With the stopper in the bottle, the glass being clear in color and it's clean and bright condition you don't see these imperfections. The stopper has no evidence of Dauber, which can be quite common as when they were broken a lot of dealers, us included, would remove the sharp remains so a new owner would not be hurt.
Holding the body of the bottle at just the right angle you can find a circular acid mark on the smooth underside that reads "Made in Czechoslovakia". The bottle is difficult to measure due to its curved shape and standing on a foot. In its proper display stance from the outer edge of its stopper to the end tip of the bottle it is approximately 8 3/4 inches long with it's tallest point being through the stopper at 4 3/8 inches.
