Unger Bros Sterling Crystal Lay Down Perfume

A late 1890s scent bottle with an exquisite cut crystal body and sterling mounts by Unger Brothers, a silver company famous for its Art Nouveau silver work. It was meant to lie on a dresser or to hang from a chatelaine (there is a loop on the collar for a chain). The long tapered glass body is twisted on the bottom portion and has a pattern of quilted diamonds around an eight sided waist in the top half. The silver collar with a hinged domed top has a repousse swirls design and a gold washed interior. Inside, a glass stopper fits snugly into the bottle.

The scent bottle is 5 5/8" long and weighs 52 grams. The bottle is filled with what looks to be smelling salts. The glass stopper, which has brown colored perfume residue, is tight, but I was told that it has been opened lately, however, I didn't open it. The Unger hallmark and Sterling mark is on the collar. Examination with a loupe shows minuscule chips along the edges, typical of cut glass and not noticeable with the naked eye or with the fingers.
