Perfume Bottles Auction
Prominent among the property offered from estates and private collections, will be a single owner collection from South America featuring an important and varied selection of commercial perfume bottles - many in original boxes - including early designs by Rene Lalique, Andre Jollivet, Julian Viard, Baccarat and other noted glassmakers. A selection of unusual Palais Royal presentations of crystal, marble, and bronze; 18th and 19th century vinaigrettes and scent bottles of porcelain, silver, and gold; as well as an assortment of powder boxes, compacts, Art Deco DeVilbiss and figural porcelain atomizers; will be highlighted by a spectacular array of vintage Czechoslovakian crystal bottles - with and without jeweled mounts - including those by Hoffmann, Schlevogt, and Irice.
