“DeVilbiss Perfume Bottles” is the first-ever complete guide to collecting and understanding the perfume bottles and related vanity products produced by DeVilbiss, the world’s foremost atomizer manufacturer of the 20th century. This expansive 320-page volume tells the tale of a truly remarkable company. It includes over 900 photos of 1,000 bottles, lamps and accessories from the authors’ extensive collection and several of the other most important DeVilbiss collections in America. Everything you wanted to know about DeVilbiss and the glass manufacturers that supplied their bottles is included.

The text provides information from never-before-seen DeVilbiss Company archives, including specificaions, design and engineering drawings, product descriptions, and company correspondence.  Special focus is given to the glass manufacturers that supplied bottles to DeVilbiss.

Also included is an exploration of the early cut and decorated bottles from Bohemia and the American Brilliant period, the opulent designs of the 1920’s, the recovery from the Depression, along with new tastes of the 1930’s, and the post-war embrace of the glass masters of Murano, Germany, and France.
