Hi Stella, I'd suggest looking around online and keeping your eyes open. Charles James patterns are rare, but you might be able to find some on Ebay, Etsy or the Simplicity website for vintage patterns (http://www.simplicity.com/c-390-vintage.aspx). I hope this helps!
Hi Diane, Unfortunately, our code of ethics prohibit FIDM Museum staff from making appraisals or offering valuations. I'd suggest sleuthing around online to see if you are able to find any comparable bottles. These might offer you an idea as to the value of your piece. Good luck!
