Back in the day -- the Czech Perfume Bottles in the 1920s-40s were only for those who were wealthy and could afford them. Many of the molds were destroyed over the years from wear -- so a czech company was formed in the CZECH REPUBLIC called Desna to reproduce similar styles and this is one of them. This shows the lovers and is handcut in heavy heavy crystal. You'll notice the newer styles learned from the old mistakes and eliminated the dauber (the long glass stem) on the end of the stopper.

In researching we found an exact copy at Worthpoint (antique shop online) -- and found this from 2007:

Authentic, Handmade, DESNA CLASSIC "HEART" Perfume Bottle with Stopper Estimated Retail Value:$248.00 USD Original ART DECO design.
This piece was crafted using a vintage mold and centuries old techniques.
Design: Vogel & Zappe. An art deco perfume bottle with very graceful lines. The stopper is 1-1/2 inches wide, 3 inches high and 1/4 inch thick. Intaglio design of a nude couple holding hands and reclining on a floral garland. The detail of the two figures is quite outstanding. Clear polished finish. Handmade in Czech Republic.

In the new book by Jones-North -- documented as an INGRID GLASS DESIGN - Page 81.


Prices have only gone up since then! Marked with original tag on the bottom as well as acid etched Desna -- a wonderful bottle -- kept in a cabinet -- so like new. Intaglio (carving) on one side like the old days. Measures 6 1/2 high x 3 inches wide -- a truly stunning piece to pass down. Wonderful wedding gift for the bride since shoes a man and a woman in embrace.

Wonderful BOHEMIAN Desna Vintage CRYSTAL Perfume Bottle -- great condition -- 1980s
