What Are Antique Perfume Bottles?
Zhejiang Cosme Packaging Co.,Ltd | Updated: Feb 24, 2017

Antique perfume bottles are bottles produced to hold perfume in an earlier era. Many people define bottles as “antique” if they pre-date the 1920s, although some people push the date back even further, to 1900 or the 1800s. In any case, antique perfume bottles demonstrate construction techniques which are no longer in widespread use, and people collect them because they are interesting relics of human history, and because many are also quite lovely.

As archaeological evidence indicates, humans have been making perfumes for thousands of years. The Greeks and Romans both used perfume readily, as did the Egyptians and many ancient Asian cultures, and some very fine examples of ancient perfume bottles of historical interest have been discovered at sites around the world. The dividing line between “antique” and “ancient” falls for most people around the 1700s, although it is extremely rare to find affordable bottles from this period on the open market.

A number of construction materials may be involved in antique perfume bottles and atomizers. Glass is common, especially in the case of perfume bottles from Italy and the Czech Republic. Porcelain was also in common use in regions like France, and in Britain and some other regions, metal or combinations of metal and glass were used for perfume bottles. Many bottles include jewels, beading, precious metals, and other decorative accents which can add to their value considerably.
