Blown Glass Perfumes

A group of new blown glass perfumes are made of very thin glass with lots of gold decoration. The majority of these new perfumes have a distinctive twisted leaf-shaped stopper crimped with grooves (Fig. 2). About 90% of the new blown glass perfumes in this group have this stopper. The new stoppers are ground around the collar and have blown daubers. Wholesale cost was $7-$9 each.
