There is a small niche in the antique market of French small clear crystal art glass items that are carefully and professionally hand painted with oils and enamels by French artists. The glass is usually Baccarat or one of the glassmakers or cristalleries near Baccarat. The age is the 19th century, circa 1850 to 1890, for the majority of the small painted glass pieces. The niche is because the paintings are executed somewhat in miniature, and with a high degree of artistic professionalism. I have a few of these pieces for sale in my shop.

This bottle is made of clear crystal glass. It is a perfume, cologne, scent or powder bottle with a top that screws on; the metal is bronze or brass, most likely bronze. The metal has a lot of age patina. It is 3 7/8" high and 3' wide at the belly.

It is hard to tell in the photos, but the glass is paneled.

On each side is painted a flying bird over a window of clear glass. Be sure to look at the photos carefully, because you can see the bird on the opposite side of the bottle flying in reverse, so both birds can be seen at the same time. Around the windows are white enamel beading, and the beading shows as small flowers at the bottom with yellow middles. There is one bead missing on the first window.

Between the windows with the flying birds the glass is frosted and decorated with yellow and gold enamel. The bottom of the bottle remains clear. Around the bottom is a line of gold trim.

The bottom has a slight indentation in the middle. There is a hand enameled "M 321" on the bottom. Sometimes there is a clear crystal stopper and this bottle has no such stopper.

There are no chips, nicks or cracks. There is some age wear on the bottom. There is age patina on the bronze lid.
