Set of 3 French sterling silver and cut glass perfume or cologne bottles. With oval shaped cylindrical glass bodies, the trio feature exquisite wheel cut paneling and a deep 16-point wheel cut star-burst to the base. Mounted with sterling silver threaded collar and screw on lids that reveal a cut glass stopper beneath. The lids are beautifully decorated with an all over guilloche engraved pattern centered on top by a blank cartouche. The lids on these bottles are of thick silver, not thin as is often the case with these old vanity bottles. Rather they are quite sturdy and perfect for use as cologne bottles in addition to storing lady's perfume. Hallmarked with the French Minerve 1st standard mark, which depicts the goddess Minerva with a number 1 beside her indicating a silver content of .950/1000 silver, 95% pure silver and a higher grade than .925 sterling. Also bearing a silversmith's mark, visible in the photos. In good condition with no chips or cracks nor dents to the silver mounts, the set appears to have hardly been used. The bottles measure 4 1/4" in height, the base measures 2" length x 1 1/2" width.
