Circa 1939, "Yesteryear" by Babs Creations, Clear Glass, Novelty, Commercial Perfume Bottle / Cologne with Girl Holding Umbrella
Babs Creations was founded by Charles H Foster in 1939. The company was located in New York, New York. This wonderful, figural bottle was designed circa 1939, by Walter Hershfield for Babs Creations. This lovely bottle held "Yesteryear" Cologne. Novelty perfume bottles were often sold in dime stores. These charming bottles were made in many whimsical shapes.

This delightful cologne bottle is molded in the shape of a lady clad in a long dress. She is standing with both of her hands grasping an umbrella. Her long skirt is accented with a ruffled border. Her facial features are well delineated as well as her long, flowing tresses. This bottle features the original, gold tone, metal screw cap. The cap screws perfectly on the bottle and it is ORIGINAL. Molded on the base of the bottle: BABS CREATIONS INC. * PAT. PENDING. I did not clean this terrific bottle because I did not want to lose the last bit of fragrance from the original perfume. The scent is lovely! This bottle is CLEAN and CLEAR! Any discoloration in the photos are glare and shadows. A rectangular shaped, silver foil label is affixed to the front of the bottle. Unfortunately, over the many years the lettering has been rubbed off and they are illegible. The label is in poor condition with major loss to the lettering. Mentioned for accuracy!
