    I would like to know more about this bottle. This bottle is approx. 2 1/4" tall x 2 1/8" wide. The label on front is a small gold tone with black (little squares) border and a pink rose. The name is in a fancy font "Ci-Mi". On the base is a gold tone round label with gold tone writing in script "Agra" and Parfumer in print. The label isn't torn but it is dirty, so it is hard to read gold on gold. I can only make it out with a magnifying glass.
    Searching the internet I only came up with the year as 1923??? (by the name only not a picture). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi, beautiful bottle.

      I can see the label depicted in the first photo somewhat well. I cannot see the one in the third photo at all, except as a 'circle'. None of the photos enlarge. I think that the label in Photo 1 reads: "CANI...". However, there was a fragrance called "Ci-Mi", produced by Agra of Detroit, 1923. I have no photo. Here's the documentation from the redoubtable Cleopatra:

      Please look again at the label in Photo 1. Could it be "CANI..."? Thanks! miKKo

      Hi, I have enhanced the image, and I now see "Ci-Mi". I spent twenty minutes looking for a photo, and I cannot find it. I recommend that you join Cleopatra's blog and ask her. She's incredible. Best wishes for success! miKKo

      Hi miKKo,
      First, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Thank you so much for the information, and the love for my bottle. I will check it out. Once again, I am also sorry for driving you crazy trying to figure out the writing. I know the photo's aren't the best. Plus the lettering is in a fancy font writing, which makes it even harder to read. I know it took me a while to make out the name and I had the bottle right in my hand. LOL.

      Hi, Kathycat! Thanks much for the message! Oh, you didn't drive me crazy at all. Your description was very good, indeed! I enjoyed looking for an answer for you. Usually with perfume I can track down an answer quickly, but I think that this will be a hard one. I did find some circa 1910 Agra testers, but they were named fragrances, none of which was yours, and the bottle style was different. Since Cleopatra is familiar with this line of fragrances, I think that it would be well for you to join her blog and ask her directly. Cleopatra is one of the monarchs of the perfume world. It's possible that someone else on CW will recognize this, but perhaps not. Wish I could have helped you more! Regards, miKKo
