    Hello my name is keno, I started getting very interested in antiques about a year ago. I have a perfume bottle and I would like to know how old it is and if it has any value.??? I believe is around 40-50 years old..
    There’s something in the items that make me feel interested about..
    I live in Florida and I work with seniors, one of the seniors talk to me about his coin collection and I thought it was impressive.
    He also had a stamp collection and told me to keep the book full
    Of stamps.
    I since became very interested in finding antiques..

    @kenovizio - Hello & welcome to the forum!! :happy::happy:

    I am going to need some assistance from someone who can turn your photo upright & if possible make it a little larger. :):) @i need help

    However if you could provide a little larger photo & have the bottle placed in front of a plain neutral background that would also be wonderful.

    My guess right now is c.1970's likely imported by Irice. Hopefully once I get a better look at the hardware I can be more definitive.

    Thanks for the assistance @i need help!! :happy::happy:

    While I can not be absolutely sure, I would guess at one time it had a foil Irice sticker on the bottle. As I said earlier they were just an importer & did not actually make any of the items they sold.

    The hardware is fairly generic & this bottle could have been paired with a myriad of different screw on toppers. They came in many different styles, colors & shapes from very elaborate to rather plain. The puffer ball is of course missing, but replacements can be bought on-line. If the plastic tubing is still present inside it could still be operational. You also may be able to find replacements for that on-line also if you are looking to use the bottle.

    I think my original age estimate of c.1970 is probably about right. On-line value is fairly low & on eBay would bring somewhere between $10 to $20. The more elaborate toppers sometimes bring more, but this is one of the more plainer toppers.
