flowerrose
(58 items)

If I had a perfume shop I would use these on the counter.

I don't think they are silver - not sure about silver plate. Maybe just plain old metal.

Does anyone know era? Victorian?

I think the fish is a paper holder - put the paper in it's mouth. It only has one red crystal eye - the other one is missing.

    Hi VolDeNuit - thank you very much!! I posted a photo of a perfume bottle up a while ago - I was hoping you may see it - they took it down :-( I will try again! It was lovely - ornate!

    Its a guess, but the top item looks like a piece of multi piece desk set, it being a "tape dispenser" ? with the "bobin" missing. Just a thought.

    Flowerrose, I wanted to comment on your Ormolou perfume bottle, but it seems the page is missing! I wonder why that is??
    So I am now going from memory as to its exact appearance, however i found this example on ebay which I seem to recall closely resembles yours:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/MATSON-2-PERFUME-BOTTLES-WITH-CHERUBS-BIRDS-CASKET-ORMOLU-VANITY-SET-/160797830893?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25704c2eed&_uhb=1

    It's alleged manufacturer is MATSON.

    heres a good rundown on their history.

    Sorry to drop this in here - I'd have preferred to list the info on the correct page. :)

    Hi VolDeNUIT :-) thank you SO MUCH!!!!!! Yes they keep taking my page down on that bottle - so annoying! But I am so happy you got to see it and for the information you provided - just going to read it now. I will inform MiKKO as she was waiting for outcome too - thank you so much! Legend.
