A stunning hour glass form chatelaine scent bottle from the belle epoque period. This circa 1870 chatelaine scent bottle was beautifully made from the most delicious aqua and white latticino glass swirls cased in clear glass, very similar to Clichy examples. Complete with embossed gilt lid, hinges, collar, original suspension chain and original chased gilt finger ring. This is a gorgeous item offered in a rare and sough after colorway.
Size. Bottle size 2.5 inch (6.5 cm) by approx 0.75 inch diameter at its base (1.5 cm). When suspended from top of finger ring 4.5 inch (11.5 cm)
Condition: Sadly missing its original glass stopper. The gilt metal fittings have dulled with age, we have not cleaned them. The lid is a little squished at the front edges, does not affect open or closure. There is a teeny, very old, less than 1/8" surface scratch to the glass waist (too small for our zoom to pick up). There is a manufacturing frit to the inside of the glass body seen again to the waist area. The flat base has age surface wear. All points absolutely negligible but mentioned for accuracy.
