Roolf et Cie

Societe Roolf et Cie of Choisy le Roi, France.

Granted French patent FR354606 n May 13, 1903 for an atomizer with a hermetic closure.

Granted French patent FR335026 on August 1, 1904 for a "Système de vaporisateur multiple".

Granted French patent FR354606 on October 9, 1905 for an atomizer with a hermetic seal.

Granted French patent FR361348 on June 15, 1906 for an improvement for an atomizer.

Granted French patent FR372061A on March 23, 1907 for an unusual atomizer.

In the letterheads, the company listed all the articles that they manufactured, including "vaporisateurs en tout genres", by 1940, this line was crossed out in the letterhead, which leads me to believe that they no longer produced these items.

Harrods Perfume Atomizers Ad 1913

Here is a great ad from a 1913 Harrods catalogue from London. There is a variety of atomizers here in bulbless pump style including piston pump and swans neck pumps. Only two atomizers are shown with bulbs. Note that Harrods only retailed these in their department store, they did not make them. Some of these may have been made by Kitzinger Freres.
