I still haven't added this to my website and I was doing more research on it.

I ran across this article by Ivo, Angela, and Diane Lytwyn.

Frank seemed to think the perfume has similar to Haida Bohemian work. But in the article, it says that the European mercury glass walls were thin and therefore enamel decorated. It said that American mercury glass was thick walled and had cut decoration.

My perfume has both cut ovals and enamel decoration. Do you think it is Bohemian or American?
