Rare Shiebler Japanesque sterling silver chatelaine perfume vinaigrette with a bat on one side and a seahorse on the reverse. The reversible bottle measures 2 1/2" x 1 1/4" not including the chain. The piece weighs 21.8 grams. The bottle has a scalloped shell like shape with textured embossing. The bottle neck is marked sterling 1158 and S with wings for the George W Shiebler Company of New York NY. They were in business from 1876-1910. The top of the perfume bottle has a lid with 6 holes. The bottle would be filled with cotton soaked in a fragrant scent and worn to mask bodily odors back in the days when washing machines and daily baths were non existent. The bottle cap has holes for the scents to escape. The fine lady would wave this piece and sniff when foul odors assaulted her senses. The body of this piece is in excellent condition. There are 2 dings in the bottle cap as shown in the final photo. Despite this damage this piece is a very rare example of George Shiebler company at their best. It would make a great edition to a serious perfume bottle or vinaigrette collection.
