In the 1920s, Irving W. Rice stated his company, IRICE, in New York as an importer of various vanity items. The company never made items, importing their atomizers and bottles from Czechoslovakia before WWII, and from West Germany afterward. Currently, they import from mainly from Japan and Taiwan.
This is for a gorgeous IRICE set of two cylindrical, block diamond pattern cut-glass bottles on a mirrored holding tray. The tray is made of a gold-tone filigree metal, the pattern and metal matching that used in the cap of both of the bottles. The crystal adorning the cap matches the four crystal legs that give the tray a small amount of lift.
Two filigree handles with a small enamel flower each adorn both sides of the tray to allow for ease of movement. In the center of each flower is a rhinestone, colored to match the crystal used for the legs of the tray and caps of the bottles.
The bottoms of the bottles are marked “IRICE made in Czechoslovakia.” Both the caps and the tray have a small metal plate that reads “Czechoslovakia” along the seam binding the metal.
These are in great, vintage condition! The crystal on the bottles in flawless, the caps are in wonderful condition, though the crystal in the caps has darkened minutely. The mirror in the tray has a couple of blemishes, viewable in the photos. The metal on the tray is in excellent condition, though it is warped a little along the edges. The handles, with their enamel and rhinestones, are in excellent condition.
