Circa: 1885 - 1910, Antique, Victorian,
Condition: Used
Size: Decanter & Stopper Height: 11". Decanter Height Alone: 8 "
Color: Whte, Opal, or Opaline
Type: Bottles & Decanters
Country of Origin: United States
Manufacturer: Unknown Antique

AtMemoryLane. At Memory Lane, I have this oval milk glass vanity, dresser, or bureau bottle. It is commonly known as the Jenny Lind bottle, but has also been identified as the President Harrison’s Wife bottle, the actress head bottle, or the lady’s bust bottle. Either way, here it is for you to call it whatever you would like. It is covered with a type of pink goofus over the entire surface. The cold applied gold paint is only applied to the bottle; there is none – nor has there ever been any – on the stopper. Please note that the stopper is damaged.

Material: Antique Milk Glass
Color: White, aka Opal or Opaline
Total Length/Height – with the stopper: 11" +/-
Bottle Length Alone: 8" +/-
Bottle Width – at its widest point: 5" +/-
Bottle Width – front to back: 3 ¾" +/-
Creation Date: 1885 - 1910 +/-
Maker: unk
Bottom Marks: None. The bottle has a slag swirl on the bottom.
Bottle Glass Condition: Excellent. I did not notice any cracks, chips, fractures (to include hairline fractures) of any type.

- Stopper Glass Condition: Good Antique Condition. It is "busted off" at the end and is damaged, but the stopper has not been repaired and it sits on the bottle as it was intended to do.
Goofus Condition on Both Pieces: Poor. It is wearing off. The fact that it is there after all this time is remarkable, in itself.
Cold Applied Gold Paint on the Bottle (There was no gold ever applied to the stopper.): Poor. It is also wearing off – but not to the degree that the goofus is since the goofus offered a small bit of protection to the gold. Once again, I am astonished that it is still present, at all. -

Reference: Opaque Glass; Millard; 3rd Ed, 1953; Plate 141
