    These were some Flea Market finds this past weekend.
    The De Vilbiss perfume bottle is missing it's atomizer, but I thought it was a beautiful bud vase when I found it, didn't know it was a 1920's perfume atomizer until I was able to research it. I'm not sure of the glass maker, De Vilbiss used many different ones, to make the bottles for the atomizer, that he developed, but this one is probably made in the U.S.A., although he did use Bohemian glass companies also. The 1 1/4" black glass with gold flex Bottle is 5 1/2" tall, with a tapered stem to a 2 1/4" base, that's marked with a gold De Vilbiss, and has a gold plated? threaded cap, for the Atomizer to screw into.
    The vintage oval Dorothy Gray Compact, with black mask, and rhinestones, has a Savoir Faire powder, and mirror, marked in etched script Dorothy Gray, and printed DOROTHY GRAY LTD., DISTR., NEW YORK on the bottom, is 3 7/8" wide, 3" depth, and 1/2" thick. It has a push button latch.
    The 2 3/8"dia. Monet 2 mirror gold tone case has a purple, with green dots resin enamel, on a cross hatch design, it's contemporary, with a magnetic latch.
    The ceramic/pottery high heel shoe, is burgundy, with white applied ceramic stars over the surface, with a green interior, and applied petals around the rim, it's probably from the 1940's, and is 4 3/4" tall, 4 3/4" long, and 2" wide.
    Thanks for looking, and all comments or questions welcome! :^)

      Wow Bill. scored in the beauty aisle! It's so far removed from the usual things I like, but I just love the shoe!!
    7. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 4 years ago
      Thanks Karen, the perfume is black glass, can't see through it, the red is reflection from my red Hawaiian shirt! :^D I have other shoes, some are pin-cushions, but this one is different, and large, maybe was a pair, but still cool as a single! :^)

      Thanks to you all, for looking at and loving this post,
      and JImam,

      Thank you for the love vintagelamp! :^D You could almost make a small lamp out of this perfume bottle, but it's pretty nice just the way it is! :^)

      Bill, I am assuming the metal is gold? It also came with at silver chromium fitting. Here is some info for you:

      DeVilbiss/Cambridge - Cat# FB-20 – Perfumizer - Black - 1925

      Cambridge Glass Company provided this tapered footed black polished hand-blown glass blank and DeVilbiss added the Chromium OR Gold finish bullet style nozzle and fittings.
      This bottle originally came in a padded DeVilbiss gift box.

      Documented in:
      DeVilbiss 1925 Catalog and the compiled book of catalogs by Marsha Crafts.
    10. Parkerhouse, 4 years ago
      You can google and find the matching dauber bottle that came with this gift set.
    11. Parkerhouse, 4 years ago
      Oops. I just now see that the bottle has speckles on it. Are there also "windows" in the glass? Can you show it from the side?
    12. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 4 years ago
      Thanks for your comments, and info Parkerhouse, as far as I know it's gold, or at least gold plated, because there was no tarnish at all, on the metal, and yes I saw both the atomizer, and the dauber bottle, for this bottle. This has no windows, and is solid black with gold flex! :^)
    13. Parkerhouse, 4 years ago
      OK, it was just the angle of one photo that looked like it had "windows". :) It is still a Cambridge blank. Nice find.

    15. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 4 years ago
