This is a charming complete boxed perfume bottle set most likely of Indian origin. The exterior is of treen with brass stringing in a fairly intricate pattern on the lid and brass straps at the corners. When opened the lid has an original mirror with a gilt frame and further edging of purple velvet. The lid is supported by an external strut to protect the hinges. The base of the box is lined with matching purple fabric and has six perforations for six glass perfume bottles. These seem to vary in height but the design of the bottles is similar. The stoppers have some slight individual variations. One of the bottles has a damaged neck. The box has an original key and is lockable. One corner of the box is slightly damaged. This would be a lovely example to start a collection of boxed perfume bottles. 5 ins (13cm) x 3.75 ins (9.5cm) x 3 ins (7.5cm). Weight 576 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 423. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $42.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
