Glass Perfume Bottle, c. 1890s, unknown, glass, gilt, enamel, and gold over metal, 4 inches high, Rowena Dowlen, 1988.6.2.

A mold-blown purple perfume bottle with a squat pinched body with three concave sides decorated in gilt and enamel white and purple flowers. A gold over metal atomizer is screwed to the neck. This perfume bottle is believed to have been manufactured by a Bohemian company and exported to the United States, where it was used in Stuart County and Montgomery County, Tennessee by the donor’s grandmother.
