This is a cranberry chatelaine art glass scent perfume bottle, or for cologne. The bottle has a chain, sold during the Grand Tour, and a young lady bought it to hang around her neck, from a purse, or perhaps a belt. The date is circa 1860.
From top-to-bottom, the bottle is 3". From side-to-side at the widest part, the bottle is 1 1/4".
The bottle is cranberry glass, or pale ruby, and encased in a three-side ormolu panel, which is made of brass or bronze. The panels are attached to the metal around the neck. The filigree is lacy and delicate. The red glass shines through the filigree and makes the entire ensemble shine like a jewel.
The lid is hinged and snaps firmly in place. The inside tiny crystal stopper is still intact.
There is some age patina on the metal, and most noticeably towards the tip at the bottom.
The glass does not have any chips, nicks or cracks.
The top of the lid has a design in the metal.
