Most people, when they think of Czech vanity sets and perfume bottles, immediately envision elaborate cut, engraved and pressed contraptions with really over the top stoppers. And I mean, more is better.
However, the Tango era created a different aesthetic, faithful to the contrast between a solid opal color and a black stopper. I have been lucky to find complete or almost complete sets, including the rarest piece, a tray.
I have bought whatever I could find, mostly from European dealers, because they are really scarce in this country. At times I'll find a little rinse tumbler and I will add it. I do not keep atomizers, though. There is no way to make them work. I think they may be Kralik or Ruckl.
And by the way: I keep fragrances inside them!
