    I bought this from an Estate sale. The drawing is signed by Kitty. I am stumped! Does anyone recognize this decanter type? Any ideas what it may have contained?

      It's very unique & pretty, looks like a group of school teachers in a classroom, perhaps it was a commissioned drawing/gift for a school. Love that half moon bottle stopper!

      I can't tell what size it is Greatdigs, it might be a perfume bottle. The way the women are dressed it looks like it might be from the 1890's to 1920's.
      Welcome to CW Greatdigs, it's a Great place to dig up information, about the things that you have! Good luck, someone will be able to help! :^)

      Here's a bottle that might help, or the blog anyway, because don't know about it except size and age, 1920's:

      The bottle measures 9" across and 8 1/2" tall. Too large for a perfume bottle.

      Hi Greatdigs, I contacted Grace, from Cleopatra's Boudoir, and this was here response:

      Hi Bill, I just looked at that bottle, it is not antique however, it appears it may be less than 20 years old, a modern art glass or porcelain decanter.

      I hope this helps! :^)

      Thank you!
