In the perfume bottle category, and also called a scent bottle. It has a beautiful long dauber that goes deep into the bottle. It is a perfect fit, although I don't recall long daubers on these, usually the short glass plugs. But this one has a lovely hand tool glass dauber. These were necessities for women. Between the heat and foul smells from no plumping…scent and perfume and smelling salts were essential for living more comfortably. The container could be carried in a small purse or pocket.
This one is perfect and beautiful. Made at sometime in the 1800's. It has a sterling silver top, marked, in a reposse of flowers and leaves with a lovely red glass stone or Cabochon on the top. Marked "Sterling". I find no chips in the ridged glass. The top works well. Such a graceful and unusual dauber. Just a lovely piece for your perfume bottle collection! This has not been shined up in the pictures. I will be happy to do that at your request.
The scent bottle is 3 1/2 inches long 1/2 inch across.
