This is a special chatelaine and perfume bottle as the bottle itself has been created from glass and filigree gilt metal in the form of a dagger. The waist plaque is also of filigree metal with a classic chatelaine tongue for securing the item to the waist. It has a large hook which holds the chains going to the perfume bottle and this is potentially a multi-purpose hook, as the bottle could be removed and a fan or other appendage added to the waist plaque. The bottle has the classic double arms to give the dagger shape. The lid of the perfume bottle forms the handle of the dagger. This can be opened to reveal the interior of the bottle. The stopper, which may have been cork, is no longer present. The condition is very good for age. This piece would be special item to add to a collection of perfume bottles or unusual chatelaines. Length 4.75 ins (12cm). Weight 66 grams. This item appears in my book, “Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance” on page 139. Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $23.00 USD – with no tracking is cheaper. This item is covered by own insurance policy. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
