This is a dazzling vintage Aristo perfume bottle with a spectacular cut-glass design. Aristo was a prominent perfume bottle producer, as well as other cut glass items, in pre-WWII.
Aristo is a coveted name in collectible vintage perfume bottles because of the quality, name and design.
The bottle has a classic, bold, Art Deco look with wide hips complemented by slender, geometric patterns.
As you can see, the topper matches perfectly. It is flat and slightly fan-shaped, beautifully mimicking the shape of the bottle.
You will find the same inverted five-pointed star pattern at the center. The applicator wand is missing, but this doesn't affect the overall appeal of the piece.
Cut-glass is FAR more valuable than pressed glass as it requires a lifetime of practice and skill to perfect. This darling vintage bottle is a gorgeous example.
The original manufacturer's paper label can still be found on the bottom of the bottle. It reads "Aristo Genuine Bohemian Glass".
Centuries ago, glassmakers of Bohemia (modern-day Czech Republic) discovered a way to create clear, colorless glass.
This strong, clear class could be cut using a wheel. Since they shared so many characteristics, Bohemian glass was often referred to as Bohemian crystal.
The glass shows only one or two minuscule scratches.
When you look inside the bottle, there appears to be an acid mark on the bottom of the bottle. The label covers the area so we can only look from the inside.
There's something so elegant and glamorous about classic glass perfume bottles. This beauty will look perfect in a powder room or on a dressing table.
