Ah, the days before 'disposable' was a word we used every day! A lady's boudoir would be filled with beautifully made glass and silver jars for face creams and powders and lovely perfume bottles including travel-sized bottles like this one.
Made in London in 1883, this gorgeous little bottle is handmade and wonderfully engraved with a pattern of leaves and flowers. It is in excellent condition, no doubt kept safe inside its exquisite hand tooled leather and velvet box. Made by Joseph Charles Mappin, who was one of the original partners of Mappin & Co., which would later become the renowned firm of Mappin & Webb. It is fully hallmarked.
This little bottle has a glass liner and a fitted glass stopper. It still has a bit of the original retailers label attached to the box, but I couldn't quite make it out. The bottle weighs 56 grams outside the box. A beautiful and rare piece of history!
I offer layaway on most items purchased for full retail price. In general my layaway terms are 1/3 down and 1/3 in 30 days and the last 1/3 in 60 days. I am flexible so if you are interested please ask me and we can work out a payment plan that suits you. Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased or payments made on layaway are eligible for store credit only.
I always want you to be happy with every aspect of your purchase on my lane. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a full refund. I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible. My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
