Hello to all. Recently when I posted Pictures of a new addition to my Pontiled Cologne Collection, I had a few requests for some group pictures of my Collection.The other day, when I had some time I took some group shots in the window. These are difficult to capture the detail on, and this seemed to be the best spot to shoot them. These are all Pontiled, with different lip treatments. Most are thin flared lips, or rolled lips. They range in height from 3" to 11". I wont get into trying to describe each one, but I think the detail came out pretty good. I tried to group them in somewhat simular styles when possible. Hope you enjoy the slideshow.

I thought this one deserved a couple close ups. Its got an oval spot for a label on the front. On both side shoulders, there is a Cherubs face. Its the only example of this mold I have ever come across. Here's a coupls close-ups.

That's a very nice collection. Though I don't think I would buy cologne in a fish shaped bottle..... Wonder what the scent was called? "Low Tide"... [8|]

Awesome stuff Mark. If I was going to collect a certain kind of bottle,colognes would be it. Very unique.

I only ever dug 2 that were whole.

WOW! They are so beautiful. I think the initials are really cool on a few of them. The one in this picture, all the way to the right, with the flowers really stuck out to me. It's so nice.

I wonder why these types of colognes were mostly made in clear and aqua? Did they hold cheap perfume? did the colored colored ones hold more expensive perfume?
It seems like the colored ones tended to be less ornate.
Too bad they do not come in color runs like some of the bitters bottles. They are already so beautiful..but imagine a window lined with ornate colognes in shades of ambers, greens and blues.

Very nice colognes, Mark. Great photography as well. Maybe the fish bottled contained a fragrance to use when that girl you were NOT so interested in was after you [:D] ~Jim

What a fantastic collection of bottles and something that you do not see at all here in Australia.
Also just wondering what sort of price ranges these bottles go for as would not mind collecting the odd one.

Glad you folks enjoyed seeing my Colognes. I've gone to many a Bottle Show all over the East Coast to aquire them. I dont bid much on Ebay. Like a few have mentioned, they are quite a delicate bottle. I have only one with lip chips, but the price was really right on it, and I didnt have it, so I bought it. Otherwise, I have tried to buy mint ones.
To answer a few questions asked, bostaurus, This style of Cologne Bottle originally started coming over from Paris France in the 1820's and as the style became wildly popular over here, some of the American Glass Houses started copying them. Apperantly it was more the Style, then the Fragrance. I dont think the Colored ones held better perfume. I have only seen Cobalt Milk Glass, and blue Milk Glass Colognes, It would be nice if they came in more colors I guess its the mold detail, and the variety that hooked me.
andy volkerts: heres a couple shots of my Dancing Indian Cologne. I like this one alot too.

Trog: The ones shown in my pictures, start at about $50, and go up to $175 is the most I have paid. There are some killer Cobalt Pontiled Colognes that get up to the $1200 or so mark. Also a few came in Milk Glass. They also get up in the 300-500 range.

redginger, heres another angle of the one with the flowers up the front. The side has a vine pattern, and the front has a hobnailed frame around where the label would be. This one is about 7" tall. I like the bulge in the neck too.

Love it! Thanks for posting more pics of it. I'm wondering what kind of flowers they are and who made it. Where did you find this one, if you don't mind me asking?

They are beautiful! I still have a few from my collection, but it's difficult to sell them, especially on eBay, but we still appreciate them for the nice bottles they are.
