Vintage 1950's - 1960's Ormex Mexico Sterling Siesta Scent Perfume Bottle.
Very unique piece comprised of sterling silver fashioned into a figure (Senor) taking a siesta or nap....sheltered from the sun and heat tucked under a large sombrero. The figure is the actual bottle ....with the sombrero acting as the top or lid and the extending dauber. The sombrero is embellished with a polished triangular amethyst colored glass stone set in the top.
The bottle is signed Sterling Ormex Mex Pat P. on the inside of the bottle rim.
Bottle measures 1-3/8 inches high by 1-1/4 inches wide.
Weight is .34 ozt troy ounces (correct measurement for sterling) or 10.7 grams.
The bottom of the bottle is slightly rounded which makes the bottle just a bit tipsy. Vintage condition is otherwise very good. Wonderful!
