Some small pieces seem to scream: Take me home".

So it is with this pair of Apple/Pear Kosta Boda perfume bottles. Each is signed "V. Lindstrand" and numbered (see photos) and come complete with their stem stoppers. The pear stands about 2 3/4" high, and the apple stands about 2" high, not counting their stoppers. They are about 1 3/4"-2" across at widest points.

Why? A violent contrast to my mother's French Baccarat bottles and my own Tango. Besides, I am partial to glass fruits-- Kralik, anyone?

Old men disengage from objects and people, yet keep adding toys and friends.

    Believe it or not, I have one of these (a Lindstrand pear)... (actually, Anita commandeered it). I didn't know it was a bottle when I bought it- I thought I had broken it when the stem popped off!!! When I realized it was a stopper, I was as relieved as I was fascinated!

    Awesome. And your last sentence was very funny.

    Sorry folks, I was off Internet for a while 24 hours. meanwhile, I just received these "perfumes". THEY ARE TINY! Today I'll try taking pictures of them next to my Kralik apple/pear Hosch 1900 vases.

    I've got the apple - didn't know there was a pear. Will now be on the lookout!
