I just came across this perfume bottle in an Antique shop and I had to have it. I can't find another one like it on ebay or through an internet search. I've seen other perfume bottles on ebay with flowered tops and they were Irice. The shop didn't know a lot about this piece and the only sticker it has says W. Germany. I'd love to know more about if this is an Irice, its approximate age, and its approximate value. Even if it's not a treasure I LOVE it the color is amazing and more of an iridescent Peacock Blue in person. Also does anyone know what the best way to remove the old powdery perfume smell from years of the last users perfume?

    This one is very close, the sale has already ended, but you might be able to get some info from the seller. http://frenchlaundryblog.blogspot.com/2009/02/happy-valentines-day-welcome-to-party.html
    There is one here http://www.trojanhorseantiques.com/glass_page_7.htm that is missing the flowers on the top, but still has the brand name and model sticker: De Vilbiss with the number 500 62

    What a find - and how wonderful to have such a fast and accurate response to your questions! The knowledge base of people in this forum never ceases to amaze me!

    As to removing old scent smells: I have done this by simply using washing-up liquid and warm water, sometimes adding either uncooked rice grains or a few Magic Balls - tiny metal ball balls made for glass cleaning - but you have to be very gentle and very careful; always do this in a plastic bowl, swirl around a few times and rinse well, dry with a soft cloth but let the interior air dry naturally.

    I forgot about the smell question...have you tried arm&hammer baking soda? You know, the stuff we put in the fridge to cllect odors?

    Thank you all for your information and feedback. The links were great and I'll try the baking soda tip. I love this bottle, and am resisting the urge to look for more.

    Why resist it, get out there and find more! The high that can be felt when finding "that one piece" is one of the best feelings. Enjoy your score I have a feeling it wont be your last:)
