    Found these while cleaning out my Mom's house. They are about seven inches tall and 3/4" wide and deep. Appear to be some sort of concentrate for perfume since there is a note with them that says "26 drops to 1/2 oz alcohol concentrated evening in Paris perfume. Both have some liqued left in them and appear to be sealed with cork and/or wax. I am guessing they are from the mid to early fifties since the note was written on the back of a piece of paper with the date of April 28, 1952.

      Wow, had no idea they are that old. Very cool. Am I correct in assuming they are perfume concentrate? What is the correct name for them? Thanks.

      Disregard, I see salt bottles. Will Google that and see what I can find.

      Google for "flacon corsetiere" images, they were intended to hold perfume, slipped into the corset, to be ready to use without having a bag!

      That worked a lot better. Thanks a ton.
