This antique perfume scent bottle is of glass and has a fitted top made of gold in a nice rich higher carat looking color! This is in a fitted case of leather lined in a pale blue silk like material on one side and velvet on the other. The lid has a fruit and flower theme at the base and then swirls at the top interrupted by panels. The bottle has a pedestal base. The bottle is app. 4"x1.75" and the case is app. 4.25"x2". There is an old sticker on the bottom of the bottle which looks like an original price sticker or some sort - can't make out the figures.The solid gold is hallmarked on each area: the base, the shoulders, and the lid with the oak leaf showing up on both the lid and base. This has acid tested at at least 14K but not for 18K. The metal hook holds it closed.The bottle is not scuffed - there is a little perfume residue inside dried to the sides of the bottle in spots which is in some of the photos.
There is a little wear to the leather of the case in spots. The lining has fading as shown. There are dings to the two un-embellished gold panels at the top - this is hollow and one can have a skilled jeweler work these out. The stopper is in the bottle but the glass stopper top is broken off. There is a hairline in the pedestal base of the bottle which does not go all the way through. I could feel a couple of small rough-spots around the edge of the top of the base.
