4.0 out of 5 stars An Informative Collectors Guide 1 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I found this little book very helpful with a wealth of information, on collecting all types of Perfume Bottles including non-commercials (scent bottles without perfume) as well as commercials (bottles sold with perfume). It covers the art of perfume bottle making & some history from ancient times thru todays avant-garde creations such as: Pomanders, Victorian Vinaigrettes, all types of materials that were used, some famous name commerical houses, novelities & minis just to name a few areas. Each area is covered with nice photo's of the period perfume bottle. The is also a nice chapter on collecting advice including what to collect, tips, care & cleaning. This would be a great book for those who want to start collecting perfume bottles or those who are already collectors. This book should be added to your Perfume or Vanity Items library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of photos but not enough information 11 Aug 2008
By Cedria King - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a small book about perfume bottles. I feel that the author wrote as best as she could about the topic but the book is not extensive enough into history, etc. for it to be a true "guide". The book was intended to help a collector in purchasing perfume bottles but I felt there was not enough information on what to look for, how to tell if the bottle is truly an antique, how to value or grade a bottle, places to find bottles, etc. This book barely touches the surface of the knowledge that is needed for a person to be able to collect bottles without getting one that is not what the person really wanted or paid for.
