This is a French art glass crystal scent perfume bottle, for scent like perfume, but most likely used as a talcum or face powder bottle. The maker is Saint Louis; the estate has a family history that says the maker is Saint Louis; however the estate believes there is the possibility that the maker is Baccarat. The age is circa 1870.

The glass is extremely well etched and cut, with flowers and leaves that are raised up off the glass and can be felt with the fingertips.

Around the base is a band of green. I do not think the green is flashed, however it is a possibility. I think the green is another layer over the clear crystal and is cut. The green goes up three sides of the bottle in an oval loop. In the middle are etched and cut flowers and leaves, and the centers of the flowers are cut to another level to give more depth to the design. Around the green ovals are lines cut in a geometric shape, so as to outline the green ovals. Between the green ovals, on three sides are more etched flowers and leaves.

The lid is bronze, as there is a visible age patina. There is a metal collar around the neck, and the lid screws on to the bronze collar. The lid has a design of flowers and bows. There are a few small indentations in the lid where fingers gripped it over the years, on opposing sides. The word "France" is marked on the metal collar. There is no internal clear glass stopper.

The bottle is 6" high to the top of the lid and 2 ¾" wide at the belly.

There is a small nick on the green band at the lower edge, and I show a close up in one photo.

The bottom is polished flat and shows a few scratches due to age and wear. The glass is not signed.
