I found this a long time ago in the trash. It's a porcelain head of david w/ some kind of applicator or ?? underneath it. i'll add another photo of the underneath later.

    Did a quick search and didn't find this 'perfume bottle'. Look forward to seeing an image of the bottom!

    i just uploaded some new images of this mysterious garden find. can anyone tell me what it was used for? the piece stands almost 5" high and is made of a quality porcelain. that is a rust stain on the back of it which i just haven't gotten around to removing yet.

    Hi, ho2cultcha! I think that this is perhaps a McCormick whisky decanter. I haven't yet found one like yours, but take a look at the McCormick Elvis decanter below.

    Hi, ho2cultcha! I think that you are very probably correct. I found this bottle on ebay - listed as a perfume bottle by Vanda. The ebay bottle bears a clear hallmark, so I can confirm Vanda. I can’t confirm that it’s called “David” – it resembles a Michelangelo head, but it not a close match to his David. I see that the firm made at least one other ceramic classical head – that one was unnamed too. Interesting that searches of Vanda perfume pulled up references to major French perfume houses….
