From a Sarasota, FL estate is this lovely Art Nouveau perfume or scent bottle for sale. Dating to c. 1900, it measures 3 1/4" tall by 2 5/8 " wide. The bottle features a low, wide form with a short neck and everted rim in collar. The stopper and the base both bear the hand-etched number 933, which verifies that the stopper is original to the bottle.The bottle is decorated with heavy silver overlay in an iris flower pattern.
The sterling silver overlay is of very high quality and is thickly applied, with delicate and detailed etching within the Iris flowers. The front medallion is etched with the letter "F". There is a faint "CS" maker’s mark inscribed on the silver but we have not been able to determine the full name of the silversmith/silver company.
The stopper is in excellent condition, free of any chips or cracks although it does have a slight bruise which was likely created in the original making of the bottle. The inside of the bottle has some cloudy residue in places which will almost certainly clean up, but we have elected to leave it in its original condition.
This is an elegant little bottle and sure to make a wonderful addition to anyone's collection.
Please call or email if you have questions, and thank you for looking.
