The drawings above are from Mikelyn Roderick’s 2003 patent for “Letter and Number Shaped” bottles.
I couldn’t find the product as envisioned here, although I did find a matching “A” and “B” bottle on eBay. I suppose the manufacturer may have originally made all 26 letter-shaped bottles, but if certain letters just didn’t sell well, those letters may have been discontinued.
Below are three vintage perfume bottles that represent my best effort at finding A, B & C shaped examples….
Tomorrow’s subject? X-Y-Z boxes.
