Czech Airplane Perfume Atomizers c1920s-1930s

in the 1920s and 1930s, aviation was just starting to become more common, and more daring with such flying champions like Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhardt,  the airplane itself lent itself to various forms of decor during the Art Deco period. As you can see in the following images, airplanes were also a part of perfume bottle decorations, whether having the bottle itself become the main body of the airplane or having the atomizer hardware itself the airplane.

1920s Czech atomizer, enameled glass, chromed metal fittings, original hose and ball. 7 1/2 in.

This bottle is similar in shape to the one above. Made up of tango orange Czech glass, mounted with brass hardware, but missing its wings. Notice the gold line painted on both bottles.

The Czech glass bottle below has the atomizer hardware in the shape of an airplane, very neat!! The bottle is decorated with an etched design of either stylized clouds or airplane propeller in motion.
