The beautiful blue glass one with the silver top was my Granny’s. I’m told that when she let me hold it when I was about 18 months old, I bit the top! You can see how the shape is spoilt by my tiny new teeth!
Mum’s Eau de Cologne has never been opened and is still in its original box.
My perfume in this beautifully shaped bottle was brought from Russia for me! We had two Russian students to stay with us when I was 11 and they brought presents for us all. I was so thrilled to be given such a grown-up gift!
This beautiful perfume bottle was made by one of nephews, a very talented creator in glass, who works in Arizona.
