Vintage 1920s Fry Glass Stacked Marble Perfume Atomizer

This simple, yet beautiful perfume atomizer was sold by DeVilbiss Co. in 1929 and is catalog # E-66.

The pretty stacked marble (or bubble) stem was an interesting design made by the Fry Glass Co. and the glass is a transparent pink shade. A restrained use of gold was used only on the foot and underneath the bowl of the bottle, a contrast to the heavy gold encrustation and bold colored enameled that was used in the years prior.

Also notice the unusual "thumb push" hardware, in which we have seen examples first used in 1928. To use, one only had to press down on the silk covered rubber disk on the top to force air into the atomizer.

This bottle stands 6 1/2" tall from the base to the top of the hardware.
