Gaston Praquin: Antique French Sterling Silver Vermeil, Hand Blown & Etched Crystal Perfume Bottle, Complete

This exquisite Art Nouveau perfume bottle created with hand blown etched crystal, doubtless Baccarat, encased in a large sterling silver vermeil cuff. The tiny little stopper, also crystal, is present, with a small chip or flake on the bottom; invisible and without any sharp edge. This feature is quite nice as the little stoppers are so easily lost and thus are often missing. The top of the bottle matches the sterling vermeil cuff. The Art Nouveau styling includes guilloche ground delicately polka dotted, applied silver swags of ivy and laurel leafs with berries. Bottom cuff and top both bear .950 sterling guarantee and the maker's punch for Gaston Praquin, a reliable creator of high quality decorative and practical sterling silver.

Dimensions: The entire ensemble is 4 5/8" tall, and the widest measure of circumference is 2.75". Marks are on both the top and the bottom silver portions. The crystal is not marked; the quality however, and the virtual monopoly enjoyed by Baccarat, certainly imply that this fine and reputable company provided the glass portions.
