One of my favorite things to collect is perfume bottles. Any color, any size, any style and I am hooked. I thought I would get away from the CQ blocks for a minute and share my collection. Some are gifts from special people, some are mementos from trips, and some are just bottles I couldn't resist.
Above I have one from China that is painted inside and also a small perfume bottle from the World's Fair in Germany which we attended I believe in 2001/2002.
This set is Vaseline glass. One of the stoppers (on the right) is damaged but I still think it is a beautiful set. Maybe one day I can have a glass blower friend try to fix it.
I love the color of the tall one on the right.
I tend to be drawn to glass bottles on decorative metal bases also, like the two above.
I have several clear glass perfume bottles, some antique and some new. I just purchased a dresser set with two perfume bottles, a vanity jar and a tray. I will be picking it up after Ragbrai. Then to find a place for it...
I couldn't resist this little set even though the lid was missing.
My son was married in the Bahamas and I had to pick up this sea shell shaped set while there as a memento of the occasion. I also have a similar set from a trip to Cancun.
More of my clear set. Love the large decorative stoppers.
Had to have this trinket box with hidden bottle.
Some of the small bottle collections I couldn't resist along with a long-stemmed single rose perfume bottle.
And, of course, what would any perfume bottle collection be without a couple of iridescent pink bottles.
These are a few of my favorite things. Anyone else out there collect perfume bottles? What is your favorite collectible?
