REDUCED FROM 58!
Offered is the fourth in a series of 5 antique perfume collections from the estate of a very affluent lady from Central Pennsylvania. For more details about this lady and her collections, please see the first listing of the series, "Evening in Paris," http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40399429

Offered is a fabulous "floor lamp" by Stuart, "Perfume Hi-Lights." It first appeared in 1939. This novelty set can be referenced in 'Perfume, Cologne and Scent Bottles' by Jacquelyne Y. Jones-North, 4th edition, page 160.

The "lamp" is 6" high, has a brass base and lamp pole and a glass shade, painted or silk-screened in red and yellow. There is a shiny brass finial on the top. A brass pull chain with a red plastic bead on the end, when pulled, lowers a tray holding 3 miniature perfume bottles. The little bottles have plastic caps in white, lavendar and light blue. All three bottles contain the original perfume, and the bottles are marked with the numbers 7, 4 and 2, respectively. There is no clue as to the identity of the perfumes, and research of this collection revealed that none of the Stuart Hi-Lights were identified.

The collection -- lamp, chain, perfume bottles, caps -- are in excellent condition. One bottle is approximately 1/2 full, the others have approximately 1-2 cc left. The original tag is still intact on the lamp itself which states, "PULL LAMP CORD to straighten or remove bottles." The felt bottom is still intact and undamaged as well. There is only slight tarnish on the lamp pole and base, which could be cleaned and polished with a paste metal cleaner.

This is a rare and delightful collector's item, particularly for one who collects unusual antique perfume pieces. This precious, shining brass floor lamp perfume bottle set would look outstanding displayed in a novelty perfume bottle collection.
