Beautiful and rare English Victorian period scent bottle box, circa 1850.

This lacquerware box is decorated with inlaid Mother of Pearl, abalone shell, hand painting and gilt. The style and quality are reminiscent of wares made by Jenners & Bettridge, but the box is not signed.

The red velvet interior holds 4 cut glass scent bottles.

The overall appearance of the box is good, with wear as follows: crazing to the black laquer, corner chips in the upper right front, lower right front and rear. Two of the bottles are undamaged, although one of these has a stuck stopper. I didn't try to unsti.ck it. One bottle has a chip on the rim, and one bottle has a damaged top.

There are two old stickers on the bottom that appear to read "Mandy." I don't know the meaning, but I left them on in case they are clue to the provenance.

The box measures 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" at the base. The height is 4 1/2".
