A striking bohemian glass perfume bottle dating from the Biedermeier period circa 1830-1850. The glass is golden amber, detailed with hand gilding.
The body of the bottle is a hexagonal bell shape with impressed arched panels decorated with a floral design. The base of the bell shape is finished in scalloped cut petals. The scalloped petals are repeated on the spire shaped fitted stopper. The bottle stands at almost 7 inches tall with the stopper in place. The base is 3 1/2 inches in diameter. The condition is fair with a sizable chip to the neck of the bottle ( please closely examine the above images for details). The stopper has some pitting to the top surface of two petal, but remarkably the finial and fitted stopper are undamaged. There is also considerable loss of gilding throughout due to age and use. Still this bottle has plenty to offer with its regal presence and rich color. The asking price is reduced in consideration for the condition.
