This is a most pleasing small perfume bottle chatelaine of the major era of chatelaine-wearing, c1870s. It features a perforated or filigree circular waist plaque decorated with a fleur-de-lis. The belt hook for attachment to the skirt or belt is hinged at the top and there is one loop and swivel attached. From this hangs a matching crystal perfume bottle, again with lacy filigree style decoration which includes a fleur-de-lis on one side and a mythical figure on the other. The perfume bottle top is hinged but there is currently no stopper. The condition of the piece is very good for age. The ring at the top of the swivel could easily be tightened. This would be most attractive item to wear or to add to a collection of perfume bottles or chatelaines. Similar examples in other metals and varying styles were illustrated in the book, “Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance” on pages 139 and 142. Maximum length 6 ins (15.2cm). Length of plaque 3 ins (7.7cm). Length of bottle 3 ins (7.7cm, width 1.5 ins (3.8cm). Weight 56 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $38.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
