Pair, Circa 1930's, Cut & Faceted, Quiver Shaped, Czechoslovakian/Czech, Bejeweled, Blue Crystal, Atomizer Perfume/Scent Bottles by the T J. Holmes Company, Inc.
The oldest, continuously operating atomizer perfume bottle company in the United States is The T J. Holmes Company, Inc. In 1870, Thomas Jefferson Holmes founded the company in Chartley, MA. Like DeVilbiss, T.J. Holmes originally manufactured only medical atomizers with a specialty in nose and throat afflictions. On March 3, 1876, Mr. Holmes applied for a patent for a perfume atomizer he had designed. T.J. Holmes did little to promote his atomizers until the 1930s. In the 1930's, Fred Lohse became president of the company. The company always manufactured the atomizer tops used on the bottles. They like DeVilbiss purchased their bottles from a variety of glass makers around the world. If you would like more detailed information on these scent bottles and/or T J. Holmes Company, they can be referenced in; Perfume, Cologne and Scent Bottles, Revised 3rd Edition by Jacquelyne Y. Jones North on pages 80 & 81.
Crisp cutting accents the three sides of these quiver shaped bottles. These arrow/quiver shaped bottles are characteristic of Art Deco design. These fanciful bottles would look fantastic in your boudoir. The side view of these luxurious bottles is dazzling. A diagonal pattern accents the sides of these gorgeous bottles. The pretty, blue colored crystal is gorgeous when held up to the light. A sparkly, opalescent, clear to pastel blue colored paste stone tops the silver tone hardware. The opalescent glass “gem” shimmers in the light. The opal-like stone is in mint condition with no damages. The threading on the silver tone tops are intact and in perfect condition. Both of the tops screw and unscrew perfectly on the bottles. One of the bottles is acid stamped in an oval on the base of the bottle: Made In Czechoslovakia. The second bottle may have an acid stamp on the base. It is difficult to know if the base is acid stamped because the label is affixed to the bottom of the bottle. Affixed to the bottom of one of the bottles is the original, round shaped, paper label. Printed on the label in blue colored lettering, T.J. HOLMES CO., INC. * HOME?? OF ATOMIZERS SINCE 18?? * CHARTLEY, MASS. The label is in fair condition with loss to some of the lettering and it is missing a few bits/words at the edges. These treasures are complete with their original, silver tone (Chrome?) mounts and hardware. The silver tone mounts and hardware are in excellent condition with no damages. The brilliant, blue colored atomizer bulbs and delicate, glass draw tube stems unscrew and are removable. The original, tiny, clear glass draw / siphon tubes are intact and in pristine condition. These stunning bottles have bright blue colored atomizer bulbs and tassels. The matching, bright, blue colored, atomizer bulbs fit perfectly in the bottles and they are in MINT condition. I am not sure if the atomizer bulbs and tassels have been replaced. The bulbs and tassels are in such good condition it is difficult to decide if they are original. Just decant your favorite perfume and enjoy. These marvelous bottles are a prize to add to your collection. These outstanding bottles are in such great condition, I feel that they have NEVER been used. These beautiful perfume bottles each measure approximately 3 inches in height. The hardware retains its soft, silvery finish. The mounts have a nice, warm patina. I did not want to polish these bottles and ruin their beautiful patina. I will leave the cleaning to the new owner. There is a couple of MINOR “flea bites” on the faceted edges of the bottles. To be safe I will say minor scratching and a few fleabites, etc. The minor scratches and fleabites are normal for this type of glass - the brilliant cutting far outweighs the tiny bit of damage on these glorious perfume bottles. I am VERY PICKY, I ALWAYS mention EVERY, TINY damage. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Otherwise, Good condition; NO; DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. These stunning perfume bottles would make a great gift for the atomizer collector. Please remember you are purchasing TWO (2) breathtaking pieces for ONE LOW price!
