Small purfume bottle ,may be Chinese or American.

Hi members
Are these marks Chinese or American ,The word sterling is strange if it is Chinese,unless made for the American market.

Interesting pretty bottle (I feel) interested in age as well,if anyone has seen these before.

The letters look like Y.C.C.
Regards Guido.

Hi Guido,

That is the mark of an, as yet, undocumented company, 'Y.C.Co.', thought to be a retail outfit operating in Tientsin c.1900-c.1940.

Hi Trev
Thanks for your reply.
Have just found a possibility the name Yuchang seems to come up for these type of bottles .your dates sound right.

Again many thanks.

Guido.
