Three matched Czech Art Deco geometric trinket set pieces (presumably in crystal) – atomiser (with no markings to metal head), perfume flask, and lidded pot – not particularly unusual in themselves, but in this instance two of the pieces (the atomiser and perfume flask) have foil labels to their underside.

The labels have a ‘JS/SJ’ central logo  bordered by ‘Made in Czechoslovakia’.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on GMB granted by Patrick Sturkyn).

I’ve already posted an ID query for the label on the Czech-glass section of GMB at,50514.0.html
and Frank has identified the label as that of Josef Schussheim & Co.  Leipzig, Saxony - Refinery/decorator 1922 on.

It has similarities to the Josephinenhutte pattern shown in the 1936 catalogue, but the base is slightly different. The stoppers/finials are very similar though.
