The Crown Top Book is the first and only reference book devoted solely to collecting German porcelain perfume bottles of the Golden Era. This comprehensive work is the culmination of 15 years of research and contains information about German porcelain perfume bottles never before discussed. The Crown Top Book is not limited to bottles with crown-shaped stoppers that have given this collecting genre its name, it also includes perfume atomizers, bottles with cork, porcelain and mercury glass stoppers produced from 1920-1939.
Brief History of the Golden Era -- This chapter sets the time in history for these delightful bottles.
About German Porcelain Perfume Bottles -- This chapter covers everything you wanted to know about crown tops from defining the term "crown top" to explaining where and how they were made, discussing different types of stoppers, illustrating paper labels and bottom stamps, identifying the problem of mistaken country attribution, discussing souvenir bottles and establishing collecting criteria and more.
Makers and Marks -- This chapter contains information about 14 German manufacturers of porcelain perfume bottles. The pictures of vintage factory catalog pages displaying perfume bottles produced by these 14 factories are valuable aids for collectors and dealers when assigning attribution for specific bottles.
Reissues, Reproductions, Fantasies, and Imposters -- An entire chapter is devoted to identifying these bottles with detailed information and comparative photos to assist in distinguishing the old from the new and the authentic from the shams -- reissued Heinz flask heads and Frozen Charlottes, fantasy (fake) bottles that never existed in the past, imposter naughty squirters, liquor bottles, snuff bottles, and more are identified, discussed and illustrated. This information is essential in maintaining the integrity of one's collection or one's reputation as a seller.
The Picture Gallery -- A virtual museum of over 1,250 photographs of bottles conveniently organized into ten categories, each displayed as a separate gallery. Perfume bottle combos, sets, flasks and silver overlays have never been categorized, pictured or discussed in other reference sources before.
The Value Guide -- All the bottles in the galleries are assigned a value level. Collectors and dealers will find this information helpful when buying and selling.

From the unique capsules of historical information that accompany selected bottles in The Picture Gallery, to the author's colorful designations of Kinder Kids, Heinz Brothers, Mirror Ladies and more, the author has presented a highly informative and lighthearted approach to the subject of Crown Top collecting with a well-organized format and easy-to-read style. This is a "must have" reference book for collectors and dealers of German porcelain perfume bottles.

PATRIOTIC LADY WITH BOUQUET URN, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From my personal collection. German porcelain crown top perfume bottle. I call this little gray-haired woman the Patriotic Lady because of her colorful red, white and blue skirt. The bodice of her dress is black, and she is holding a large bouquet urn of bright flowers. Crown top perfume bottles by Fasold & Stauch are very creative and desirable. This F&S bottle, model number 5670, is typical of the uniqueness of design and quality workmanship that have attracted me to their bottles. The Patriotic Lady is pictured on page 184 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline E. Turco. The lady is also seen on the Fasold & Stauch factory catalog page in the book. See page 43.

DUTCH LADY, BOLDOOT, PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From my personal collection is this Dutch lady porcelain crown top perfume bottle. It is one of the bottles used by the perfumer, J.C. Boldoot Company of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for their world famous eau de cologne. The origin and manufacturer of these bottles has not been definitively established, but the probability is that they were produced in the Netherlands by a Dutch maker and supplied to the Boldoot Company. The faces of Dutch people on the Boldoot bottles are decorated with coral nose dots and red lips. Some of the folds of their clothing are enhanced with shaded accents as seen on this lady's apron and bonnet. This decorating style differs from Dutch-themed bottles of German manufacturers. The original Boldoot stopper has a barrel-shapped finial and is embossed with "J.C. Boldoot Amsterdam" on the plate. The Dutch lady is shown on page 186 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco. She is one of a pair with the country Dutchman in the listing P992.

DECO LADY, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From Pauline's collection. This German crown top perfume bottle is the top part of a perfume/trinket combo. It does not have the trinket dish. I have attributed this bottle to Goebel because it is similar in style to other Goebel pieces and has the quality in painting and production consistant with the Goebel factory. This perky little deco lady displays very nicely on her own. I particularly liked her little Flapper face and have enjoyed her as she is. She is the only one I have seen in 19 years of crown top collecting, so I would consider her a rare piece. Shown on page 143 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco.
Size: 3" h. not including stopper. Condition: The bottle is in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or repairs. The trinket dish is missing.

PROVENCAL LADY, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From Pauline's collection. This listing is for a Schneider crown top perfume bottle, Model number 14747, depicting a lady holding a bouquet of yellow cut flowers on her arm. While most crown top women are modeled as 18th and 19th century court ladies and country girls dressed in peplums, polanaise and panniers, some porcelain designers chose to vary their line by sculpting a smaller number of character ladies in regional or ethnic dress. This crown top is one of those interesting regional ladies. She is dressed in traditional clothing worn by women in the Provence region of southern France with her white chemise, colorful scarf tied around her shoulders, skirt and apron. The flat broadbrimmed hat and velvet ribbon choker with attached crucifix complete the Provencal fashion typical of the 1800s. The undercut design (elbows sculted away from the body) also adds to the complexity and value of this bottle. This is an opportunity to add a little variety and interest to your collection of crown top ladies. See the additional pictures that include a depiction of a woman in Provencal costume.

LADY IN YELLOW DRESS, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP COMBO PERFUME BOTTLEc.Pre-1939
From Pauline's collection. German porcelain crown top perfume bottle combo of a lady in a yellow dress. Combos are combination pieces that served more than one vanity purpose. The bottom of this lady's skirt is a powder box and the lid, with a closed-bottom, is a perfume bottle container with a metal crown stopper. The design of this combo involved undercutting, a sculpting process that allows elements of the design to extend beyond the general outer plane of the piece, such as arms, legs, objects, or in the case of this bottle, the flowing scarf separated from the lady's body. Multi-piece molds and longer assembly time were required for pieces with undercuting. The technique added more interest to the product, but resulted in more costly production costs. Multi-purpose vanity combos were a good idea in theory but were often cumbersome to use and more easily damaged. Not many combos were produced, and damage took a toll on those that were made, making them hard to find today. Please read the "Condition" statement below. Model number 3973. Shown on page 143 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco.
Size: 5" h. Condition: This lovely lady suffered a compression-type injury to the bottom of the lid/perfume bottle component.

COURT LADY WITH URN AND FAN, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From my personal collection -- German porcelain crown top perfume bottle. This court lady is carrying a bouquet urn and a fan. Her pompadour-styled hair is fashioned with curls cascading down her back and an Apollo's knot on top. She wears an ornate dress that required panniers, a hooped undergarment worn in the 18th century to extend the width of a skirt at the side while leaving the front and back relatively flat. This provided a panel where woven patterns, elaborate decorations and rich embroidery could be displayed and fully appreciated. The style originated in Spain and spread to other European countries. In France, it was popularized by Marie Antoinette. This is an ornate bottle design with delicate detail of arms and clothing. Sitzendorf, model number 24422.

HAPPY BUDDHA IN A YELLOW ROBE, GERMAN PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1939
From Pauline's collection. German porcelain Buddha crown top perfume bottle. This little Buddha wearing a yellow robe and a happy smile is a depiction of the Happy Buddha.

Happy Buddha, with his broad smile and rotund body is not the same as the tall, slender stately Buddha of India. This happy guy was made by Sitzendorf, model 23852, and is shown on page 212 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco.

BABY ON BLUE CHAIR, GERMAN PORCELAIN PERFUME BOTTLE, c.Pre-1920
From Pauline's collection. This charming pre-1920 porcelain crown top perfume bottle is a baby sitting on a cobalt blue chair. The baby figure and the chair are complete in themselves, separately molded, then assembled and fired. Before the early-twentieth century, clothing worn by infants and young children did not distinguish between the sexes. To us, it may appear that little boys of the past were dressed in skirts or dresses "like girls," but at the time, boys and girls were simply dressed alike in clothing appropriate for all small children, regardless of sex. This baby, boy/girl, wears a knitted hat and dress that are tinted with pastel green accents. The chair and the child's collar have shiny gold accents - a more expensive and lengthy process that required a separate firing. Shown on page 128 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco.

THE DUTCH FISHERMAN'S WIFE, BOLDOOT, PORCELAIN CROWN TOP PERFUME BOTTLE, c. Pre-1939
From my personal collection is the Dutch fisherman's wife, porcelain perfume bottle. This is one of the porcelain bottles used by the perfumer, J.C. Boldoot Company of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for their world famous eau de cologne. Most of their colognes were packaged in glass bottles, but they did use a number of charming porcelain containers to market their products. The origin and manufacturer of these bottles has not been definitively established, but the probability is that they were produced in the Netherlands by a Dutch maker and supplied to the Boldoot Company. The faces of Dutch people on Boldoot bottles are decorated with coral nose dots and red lips. Some of the folds of their clothing are enhanced with shaded accents. The decorating style differs from Dutch-themed bottles of German manufacturers. The fisherman's wife is authentically dressed and in a Dutch costume. The typical Boldoot barrel-shapped metal stopper is embossed on the top, "J.C. Boldoot Amsterdam." Model number 1538. Shown on page 203 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline E. Turco.

ORIENTAL MAN TONGUE NODDER, GERMAN PORCELAIN PERFUME BOTTLE, c.pre-1900 to 1929
German porcelain tongue-nodder perfume bottle from my personal collection. Sometimes called pagoda figures, nodders were originally placed in Chinese temples, or pagodas, to warn of earthquakes. At the first tremor, the figure's head would nod, indicating an earthquake was imminent. Fascinating! The nodder concept was adapted by the Meissen porcelain factory in the early 18th century and reached a peak in 19th-century Germany. Nodders feature various nodding body parts, and this rare nodder perfume bottle had a nodding tongue! His large ears, broad open mouth and pointy head are typical of old Oriental nodders. The bottle is attributed to turn-of-the-century Germany. His pink bisque tunic has gold decorated highlights and gold bead detail common on late 19th-century German porcelains. Alas! This poor little guy has lost the tip of his tongue. A good restorer could repair it, or you could love him for the rare novelty that he is...as I have. Seen on page 230 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco. See my other tongue nodder perfume bottle for sale, P2470, shown in the additional pictures for this listing.

She has nicely molded features and a well-painted face with rosy cheeks and red lips. Because this bottle design involved undercutting - arms and legs separated from the body, it required a multiple-piece mold. The original prototype was cut into pieces that were cast separately and later reassembled after firing. This process added time and expense to the production, but resulted in a lovely, more desirable bottle. Model number 4193. Not uncommonly, there is no bulb. Soft atomizer parts often deteriorated and are missing, but this does not detract from the beauty, value or desirability of this bottle. Large atomizer bottles are hard to find and not many models were produced. Shown on page 177 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline Turco.
Size: 7" h. to top of atomizer fitting. Condition: Excellent, no chips, cracks, or repairs.

Who can resist this adorable little cherub face with round blue-eyes slanted to the side in a big innocent stare, chubby rosy cheeks, and little red bow lips? A combination made to steal your heart. This listing is for a rare large-sized, blond-haired Kewpie-like baby. His rare larger size gives you more of him to love. The five Kewpie-like crown top babies we are most familiar with are 2 1/4 inches tall, the series of larger babies are 2 3/4 inches tall. Beside the 1/2 inch difference in size, another difference between the two series is their hair. The large babies have red, blond, sandy blond, brown and black full heads of hair, and they have a molded baby curl on their forheads. The smaller babies have round bald heads and a painted forelock. Both sized babies are molded in adorable poses. The five regular sized babies and four, of what is probably a five bottle series of large babies, are shown on page 125 of The Crown Top Book by Pauline E. Turco. Attributed to Heinz. Model number for this big blond baby is 7882. See the additional pictures for this listing showing a comparison of the two different sizes and styles of baby crown top bottles.

A note about Kewpie perfume bottles. These bottles were not produced as good quality porcelain. At the time they were made, they were affordable bottles for the masses. They may have minor flaws in casting, firing (tiny specks of kiln dust) or painting (uneven coloring) -- this is not unusual and, generally, do not affect the value. Please view the additional photos.

BETTY BOOP NOVELTY PERFUME BOTTLE, c.1930s-40s
Who doesn't love Betty Boop? This adorable novelty perfume bottle features the popular 1930s animated cartoon character, Betty Boop. Betty was the creation of Max Fleischer and animator Grim Natwick. She was depicted as a 16-year-old Jazz Baby (Flapper) with an innocent sexuality and more heart than brains. With her chubby-cheeked, large round baby face, big eyes and button nose, she suggested the combination of girlishness and maturity that many people saw in the flapper type, which Betty represented. One of her favorite expressions was,"Boop-Oop-a-Doop." This bottle has an irresistible Betty Boop face and a little red paper heart on her dress...Dada! (My efforts to find out what the significance of the Dada sticker is, did not result in any answers. Perhaps it was another of her favorite expressions.)

MARLENE DIETRICH NOVELTY PERFUME BOTTLE, c.1930s-40s
This novelty perfume bottle is often said to represent Marlene Dietrich, although I don't know of any documentation supporting this claim. Marie Magdalene "Marlene" Dietrich (December 27, 1901 – 6 May 1992) was a German-American actress and singer. She had a long and very successful career. Famous for her glamorous persona and "exotic" (to Americans) looks, she was one of the highest-paid actresses of the era. This bottle shows a slender young lady wearing long white gloves and a glamorous form-fitting gown typical of the 1930s. "Bottle Made in Germany" is molded into the glass on the bottom of the bottle. Perhaps this mysterious beauty really is modeled after the famous Marlene Dietrich! Whether or not she is the famous Hollywood beauty, she certainly could have a starring role in your novelty perfume bottle collection.
