Whimsical! Circa 1928, "Sweet Pea" by the Spencer Perfume Co / Maiton, Frosted Glass, Candle Shaped, Commercial Perfume Bottle
This charming, frosted satin glass perfume bottle was made by Maiton which was a subsidiary of the Spencer Perfume Co. The Spencer Perfume Co. was located in South Bend, Indiana circa 1928. The company was founded by George C Spencer in the 1920’s. The company was also known as Spencer’s Quality Perfumes. This wonderful bottle housed the fragrance "Sweet Pea." Mai-Ton is the name of a line of fragrances produced by The Spencer Perfume Company.
This delightful, novelty bottle is intricately detailed to resemble a burning candle. The base is cleverly designed to resemble wax dripping down the sides of the bottle. This whimsical bottle is topped with its original, frosted glass stopper. The frosted glass stopper is molded into the shape of a flame. The stopper fits perfectly into the bottle and it is in great condition. This tall, figural bottle stands on a round shaped footed base. Molded on the base of the bottle: Patent Applied For. A rectangular shaped, beige and gold colored paper label is affixed to the front of the bottle. The label is printed with raised, gold colored lettering. Printed on the label: SWEET PEA * MAITON * NEW YORK. Sadly, the label is not in very good condition. I did not clean this 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. This commercial perfume bottle is a must have for the collector! This exact scent bottle is pictured in: “Commercial Perfume Bottles” by Jacqueline Y. Jones-North on page 127, plate #378. The Spencer Perfume Co is listed in Ken Leach’s book “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” on page: 322. This fragrance and the manufacturer are listed on the Perfume Intelligence website. There is an internal “bubble” above the label. It looks to be from the original production. The bubble is not a damage. There is a sticker spot on the front of the bottle. I am not sure if this was left behind from a label. I did not clean this bottle. The spots that you see in the photographs are dust and dirt. In the photographs everything is MAGNIFIED. The spots are NOT damage - just dust! Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly! I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY damage. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Otherwise: GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, FLAKES, or CRACKS! This bottle would be a great display piece! Guaranteed vintage. This delightful, commercial perfume bottle measures approximately 7 ¼ inches in height. Please check out the similar bottle that I have listed by the Spencer Perfume Company. The base on both of these bottles is the same. The only difference in the two bottles is the stopper. This sensational scent bottle is a great gift idea for the collector. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
