Can anyone tell me what these are and what they are worth. One bottle is a little smaller than the other and a small jar with face lid to match the bottles. I think they may be perfume and powder but not for sure. Thanks for any info. Can post more pics later.

    They are Kosta Boda. Go to eBay and search "Kosta Boda faces". There are a bunch up for auction now, getting lots of bids. We generally dont like talking money on CW but like to share info so you can understand your treasures better. I agree that sometimes that includes price.

    I saw some of these at an estate auction 2 weeks ago... the bottoms were marked made in Taiwan. . .

    and then again, maybe the ones I saw were the copycat version too -

    Got them back out and looked on the bottom of them. Each one says Made in Taiwan. Does this mean they are replicas ??

    At least they hold the Made in Taiwan at the bottom...

    The original people decanters were designed by Erik Höglund for Boda in the I guess late 1950s or early 1960s. Then it's known there are Italian copies with "Made in Italy" stickers and the design isn't as bold as that of the original Swedish ones. And then there's the Made in Taiwan ones too. :/
