    A Blue/Black Square "Mary Gregory" Style, Bohemian Topless Atomiser.
    This is a really nice quality piece, I've sen quite a lot of this type of enameled glass over the years but this one felt and looked different, better....just plain GOOD!
    Usually I wouldn't look twice at it as it doesn't have it's atomiser top (I'm 99% sure that's what it was) but the detail and depth of the decoration.... I just couldn't go past it!

      It's really gorgeous, what a wonderful design of the man flying a kite in the tall grass. Lovely find

      I concur the scale issue is a bit perplexing however knowing the workmanship and man hours that went into this kind of piece gives me appreciation... poor quality can be done with a single go in the kiln but with the depth and layers of detail on this one, it must have one back in 6-7 times!

      Perhaps the "man" is meant to be one of the "wee folk" such as a leprechaun, elf, pixie, fairy etc?

      Exactly my thoughts, it is a good example of Bohemian Enameled glass, the amethyst/black/cobalt (depending who you ask... I know it's cobalt oxide or the like but....) coloring and the fact it leans the piece 10-15 years later than the ruby or cranberry examples is a positive in my eyes.... the red was done to death and in very poor quality in the end so for me, I'd rather have a well crafted piece from 1900 than a poorly made one from 1885.
      In all honesty, I don't think the fact that it's without it's top will effect value TOO much, 99% of people wouldn't use it as an atomiser (assuming that is what it was) anyway and with it's value being "good not great" anyway, that market segment is less concerned with such things.

      frotte in French can be translated to rubbed in English or worn if you are talking about an aged decoration.

      I really like this squat square cobalt glass bottle, it could also have contained a liquor or other drink, with a cork or stopper glass top. The white enamel is very detailed and of good quality. As a collector, I appreciate this piece, there is a small booklet by the Truitts called Mary Gregory, where they explain and compare the various styles, and values of this type of glass and decor.
