Crystal perfume bottle - Lenor or Lenox?
« on: September 08, 2007, 01:30:37 PM »
Hi everyone - long time no speak!

Can anyone help with this signature?  You know how useless I am at signatures.... :ac1:

I thought this said Lenox when I bought it, just a nice piece of modern crystal.  But the only Lenox marks I can find are acid etched, not signed like this one.  And looking again, the last letter looks like an R not an X... but I can find nothing on Lenor (except the fabric softener  ::) )

Has anyone seen this mark before?

The perfume bottle is roughly 9.5 ins 235 mm tall including the stopper.

Lynne, could the middle letter be r rather than n? Perhaps something like Lerou or Leroy?

That's possible Anne, and the last letter might be V making Lerov, but I can't find anything for any of these either....

It's a nicely made piece, the airtwist in the stopper is attractive.  I'd quite like to know which part of the world it came from - I have found Czech and Chinese using the Lenox name, but neither of the marks match.

Lynne — I read it as Lenoir.

I have seen something like that and it is *LENOX*  ( I think) I am 100 % sure of the supposely spelling..as to whether it should be scripted, ot etched is another story..

For example:  http://www.someonespecial.com/cgi-bin/someone/19-780418.html

Hi antiquerose, yes, I saw that one, but I can't see any sign of any form of signature, just a label.  The cursive signature on this doesn't feel very Chinese to me.

The Czech Lenox pieces have an acid engraved block signature.

Hi Bernard... could be.  Do you know of any glassworks using this name?

Could it be *someone* just used an engraver on it, to try to mislead  :huh: as signed....I had some small glasses that were signed too -- but it just seemed too shakey of signature.

No, but Lenoir seems a reasonable possibility, worth adding to the pot.

There is a Lenois, in France. They are retalilers and manufacturers, but I can't find anything else out about them.
