This delicate vintage perfume bottle is jaw-droppingly beautiful! It features cut glass the color of the Caribbean Sea, brass-colored hardware and a flower atop the bottle with glass petals.

It appears that to spray the perfume, you (carefully) pump the flower up and down. Though there's no perfume in the bottle, you can still smell the perfume that used to be there on the siphon.

This bottle is in excellent condition, but I'm not sure if it's functional since I don't want to put liquid inside it to test the pump and siphon. The only imperfections are some small dark stains on the inside of the bottle near the bottom, and a couple tiny discolorations on the base of the metal hardware.

The original foil stamp is still on the bottom; some of the writing has worn off, but I can make out that it says "I.W. Rice & Co, Inc. An Irice Product." I.W. Rice stands for Irving W. Rice.

According to santafetradingpost.com, I. W. Rice & Co. was founded in 1905 as an importer of perfume bottles and other vanity items. Irving W. Rice served as president, importing items from all over the world and selling them under the name of “Irice imports.” The company specialized in Czechoslovakian crystal in the 1930s, and switched to American manufacturers such as Imperial Glass during WWII. After the war they went back to importing, initially from West Germany and later from Japan.

This is one of the most gorgeous perfume bottles I've come across and would be a beautiful addition to your vintage bathroom or vanity decor!
