I am curious if anyone has ever seen these before.  It is not the usual kind of glass I buy, but they were so unusual I had to pick them up. I picked them up in a mall today. The tag on them stated they were purchased at a Paris Flea Market. I have never seen anything quite like them before. I was going to take a black light image, but they glow without black light!  The set of three range in height from 3.5 inches to 5 inches. The stoppers range in diameter from 1.875 to 2.250 inches. The stoppers are done in what appears to be a baked on enamel finish and not just painted.  

The underside of a couple of the bottles have pencil number remnants and 1 stopper has a pencil number remnant, so I am sure they were ground to match a bottle and numbered. Short stoppers without daubers, and originally made that way.

The neck of the tallest one has some fractures - unfortunately - I usually do not buy cracked glass, but I could not resist these......

Age wise I would guess at the 1920's, at least that is how they feel to me....

TIA for any input.....

Craig

Feeling a deja -vu... 
May we see a picture of the base, please?

Here is a pic of the base of one with the pencil I was referring to......

Christine, I knew you would be the first to comment on them.  The second I saw them I actually thought of you!!

"déjà vue" et retrouvée  :sm:

Craig, these bottles were made in many different colours by
Verreries Veuve G. Marquot & Fils, Bayel - Fains /  :fr: 1927/1928 'moulé MARGUERITE'
They came in five sizes and are part of a comprehensive vanity set.
The MARGUERITE pattern was produced in their Fains works, that uranium colour was named 'dichroique'

Here's a quick shot of that catalogue page 5 and one additionally of POMPADOUR pattern, which might interest you as well for its shape and 'jaspis' colour  :angel:

 :chky: it's nice to see you back, Craig  :kissy:

my déjà vu referred to the pattern book as above, same as Christine I've never seen a single item of that range in the flesh. Therefore uncommon here, I'd say, however can't speak for the French market  :nogos:
