A stunning and very rare deep emerald green lay down - or stand up double scent bottle opens on a hinge in the center to exhibit as two matching miniatures. It measures just shy of 6 inches long laying down - and of course standing, the two are 3" tall each.
The faceting on these are elongated & diamond ended. There are 9 facets around. I've not seen these folding center hinged lay downs before I had the opportunity to purchase a group of bottles from a collector's estate in Australia. There were 3 and I was successful in acquiring 2 of them. We've already sold the red - so this is the last one. Simple and solid brass mounts have their age acquired patina. The tops are also hinged and each has a fitted stopper.
CONDITION: Fine overall antique condition. Gilt interior to one lid, the other does have some verdigris inside the top of the lid.
A truly rare and fabulous find for a discriminating collector!
