Accessories for the Boudoir

Accessories for the Boudoir


I'm a sucker for vintage accessories like finely tooled leather gloves, delicate hand mirrors, and complicated jewelry boxes. Anything superfluous that exists only to please the senses and make you feel like a lady is great in my book! This beautiful Pink Iridescent Art Glass Perfume Bottle fits the bill to a tee. It reminds me of my friend Crystal, who is a big fan of Dorothy Parker, brocade wallpaper, vintage oxford shoes and other beautiful things. She recently gave me a lovely new atomizer, which prompted an enthusiastic house hunt for something to put in it. I never liked the bottle that my Kenzo Flower came in because I was always knocking it over, so I decided to open it up and transfer the contents. What seemed like a simple enough task ended up taking nearly an hour and giving me a nasty metal cut on my index finger, but I finally managed to crack it open. Fortunately for you, we have an easier solution: the Violet Eau de Toilette by Côté Bastide comes in a glass bottle with an easy screw-on cap, so pouring it into this lovely antique perfume bottle is a breeze. I don't know much about its history, but the brass fittings look very Art Deco to me, and the top needs some work in order to function properly. This website seems to specialize in antique atomizer parts, so if you're looking for a weekend project, you could certainly get it working again.
