This is a very special perfume bottle for a chain or chatelaine as it has been created from superbly carved rock crystal for the body, the cap and the stopper, with a finishing touch of 10 carat gold as bands on the base, cap and chain. The body and the top are decorated with tapering carving. The original stopper, again of crystal, precisely fits into the base and has a mushroom-shaped lifting top so it can be removed. The gold clip closes nicely and firmly, and the hinge at the back has been beautifully fashioned. The attached chain means that it could be worn as a pendant on a chain, or from a chatelaine. The overall condition is excellent for age. This amazing and stylish perfume bottle would be lovely to wear or to add to a special collection of exquisite perfume bottles. Length (with chain) 3.75 ins (9.5cm). Weight 28 grams.
