Vintage glass figural perfume bottle - 'Boy in Tophat'. His hair is visible on bottle reverse, and it's straight. Frosted and enameled glass with Bakelite tophat. Never opened. Interesting seal. Don't know exact age. Mustangtony has found one just like this on the internet. The bottle in the link below has a hang tag for 'Devon Violet' scent, and the bottom of the bottle indicates that it was made in Great Britain. Thanks to inky and mustangtony for their great generosity in helping ID this bottle and for their good cheer!!!

    Hello miKKo.. waht a very 'dapper' young man!... love him...:-)

    Tony, you are dangerous! Found it! Thank you!!! He looks exactly like my man on the front, but my bottle does not depict a black man. A photo of the reverse would show you that he has straight hair. I will have to look into that Devon violets bottle soon. My hand is about to fall off, so I am signing off for the night after I visit your latest listings. Thank again!! : D

    Thank you so much, inky!! You sent me two links. One was the guy with red spots on him -- close!, but not my guy. The other was a link to this show and tell item! My arm is hurting now, but I promise to google that phrase tomorrow! Thank you very much!!! : D

    Hi, Mustang! Very keen observations, excellent research, and excellent hypothesis, sir!!! I will check this out later today. First, have some responsibilities to attend to. Possible that one firm produced the bottles, which were used by several fragrance firms? I say this because I've see several ID's offered for this bottle over the years. A style! There are many 'like' him, but so far not one exactly like him. Yours looks just like him. : D Take care, sir. I'll check in later today, and might be able to announce that you've solved my mystery man. : )

    OK, the mind is fresh again, and so I return to the problem. Thanks much to good inky and mustangtony for their most generous and merry help!!! OK, this is not the Charlie McCarthy bottle. : ( Great try, though!! That one has a black boater hat, and the man wears a monocle. Mustang's 'Devon' bottle appears to be the same bottle as mine, although mine does not say that it's made in Great Britain, as the 'Devon' bottle does on the bottom. Mustang, it appears from the residue on the back of the 'Devon' bottle that the perfume was not dark and not purple. I'm not convinced that this bottle is supposed to represent a black man or boy, though there were quite a few that did. So, although I've seen this bottle described as an "Al Jolson" type bottle -- and the seller of the 'Devon' bottle makes reference to AJ -- I can't find that it is a black man. The hair on the back of the head is straight. A good bit of a mystery remains, but, ah, I will judge that once again!!! you have solved a mystery!!! Thank you, mustangtony!!! : D
