Today was a "tchotchke" kind of day. Nothing major just a couple pieces that I thought were interesting. This little 7 " bottle has a smooth neck and a crackle finished round body. The thick walled neck is actually tapered inside but smooth outside. The body has little dots all over the crackled sphere. The base is smooth with no marks or labels. Not sure what to make of it. -Mike-
Icollectglass has come through again with an ID for my bottle. It's a
1936 perfume bottle for Lucien Lelong. Very pretty crackle glass and hobnail perfume or cologne bottle for Opening Night perfume. There was a silver metal and cork stopper with a label on the neck originally.
Opening Night by Lucien Lelong: launched in 1935.
So what does it smell like? It was a sparkling aldehydic floral oriental fragrance for women with a chypre base
