Robert Heller's Perfume Vaporizer c1860s-1870s

Robert Heller's Perfume Vaporizer dates to the 1860s-1870s.

The device consists of two glass tubes, held together by gilded brass mountings.

In order to use the device, you would insert the longer tube into the perfume bottle, the hold your finger over the area where the two tubes connect, then put the other end between your lips and blow, then the perfume is expelled from the bottle.

I have never seen this item before.

  1. Robert Heller died in 1878, so this device would have been slightly before the 1880s.
