This magnificent new book explores the history of the perfume bottle, from dusty fragments found in Mesopotamian ruins, through the Middle Ages and the Victorian era, to the most resplendent examples of modern glassmaking. It even includes a Lalique bottle not yet released to the public! Other major bottle designers and manufacturers are discussed-Stiegel, De Vilbliss, Baccarat, and Saint Gobain Desjonquere, to name a few-along with perfumers who were instrumental in the growth of the industry in this century, from Crown and Caron to Elizabeth Arden. In over 400 full-color photographs, this beautiful book shows the perfume containers (including miniatures, solids, advertising fans, and the gigantic display factice) that most entrance today's collectors. Includes current value guide, meticulous documentation, and glorious photographs.
