Maker and Age: English; late 1800s
Details: The lay-down perfumes from the Victorian Era are especially fascinating, this one "doubly" so. The two ends of the perfume (or viniagrette) are separated by a half inch thick glass partition, thus allowing the carrier to sniff not just one, but two, different pleasant odors as she strolled through the not-so-sweet smelling streets of a late 1800s European city.
Ten cut panels form the sides of the dark emerald green glass with the two rims carefully beveled and polished. The original glass stopper is present in one end of the perfume (amazing to have preserved even one of these!!). A brass collar and hinged lid complete each end of the perfume.
Dimensions: 5 inches long X a little over 1 inches in diameter
Condition: Excellent! The clarity of the glass is outstanding.
Shipping: The perfume will be shipped via USPS Priority mail with insurance. International customers, please inquire about availability and cost of insured shipping to your location.
