Through 1,028 breath-taking color photographs and extensive research, Jacquelyne North has captured the enchantment of perfume bottles throughout the ages in a newly revised edition reflecting today's market. Beginning with the earliest available information (6th century B.C.) through our most contemporary designs, this book offers the reader heretofore unattainable information and an exquisite collection of illustrations. Many of the bottles pictured are currently available to collectors. These wonderful photographs are further enhanced by a concise history covering perfume, cologne, scent, atomizer and fan-stopper bottles from Northern Europe, America, Bohemia, and Japan. Over 270 patent illustrations are presented as part of a comprehensive chapter on commercial bottles. In addition a directory of perfume makers and scents and a useful price guide are included. Special emphasis has been given to bottles by Lalique and those made in Czechoslovakia. Glass, porcelain, and silver are some of the materials discussed in the creation of scent containers. Rounding out the book are chapters on dime-store novelty bottles and tips on care and presentation of scent bottles. This book is unquestionably one-of-a-kind, appealing not only to the collector but to anyone who has experienced the magic these enticing bottles and the fragrances they contain.
