In Truitt's Bohemian Glass VII p16, 4th page of reproduced Palda 1935 catalogue pages the is a small picture of a
perfume bottle the same shape as this in a pale blue overlay but cut to white. The cuts are in straight lines but evenly spaced. It has a bulb atomizer fitting.

Sufficient differences to say that the item in question is not nec from this date or by this maker but sufficient to say that it is more likely to be a perfume bottle, could be Bohemian/ Czech and significantly later than originally thought.

From a number of other examples of cut overlay glass in the book, the overlapping circles motif seemed to enjoy particular popularity in the period 1910-20. Another item with straight line cutting is dated to 1918-25.

Well, close enough ;D
Its between 1848 and 1920, its a pepperpot or a perfume bottle or something else, and it was
made in Bohemia, France, England, or The USA, or somewhere completely different.

Im happy with that ;)
Franks Perfume bottles by BrĂ¼der Rachmann seem closest . I think it may remain unresolved for now.

By the way, size is 4 1/4" (11cm) tall, diameter of base 1 3/4" (4.5cm)
Thanks all,
Andy
