Super quality chased silver perfume bottle, with glass flask and stopper within.
This beautiful quality piece is made out of solid silver with chased foliage designs covering the exterior. There is a hinged lid which is gilded to the inside and also around the neck of the bottle. This is found on finer pieces as the gilding protects the silver from the corrosive nature of perfume.
The glass flask has a ground glass stopper which makes for a secure fit. Another sign of quality.
The perfume bottle was assayed in Chester in 1889.
Monographed on cover B from P
Condition is very good for the age with with just a small dent on cover.
