This delightful Victorian Scottish agate-set perfume bottle is not commonly found among collections of Scottish jewelry. The agate stones are in-set in the form of a cross, with lovely engraving around the center. Local silversmiths were kept busy with the huge demand for Scottish jewelry during Queen Victorian’s reign as this jewelry was widely popular.
Today, one doesn’t see much Scottish jewelry on the market. But as in the Victorian period, it remains whimsical and interesting.
From the top of the hoop to the bottom, it measures 3 ¼.” At the widest point, it measures 1.” The bottle measures 1 ¾” in length. The screw off top is in fine working order and it could easily be worn as a pendant.
This is a wonderful piece to add to any perfume bottle collection or just as a special piece of period jewelry to be worn and admired.
On the back, a series of hallmarks are found under the engraving. The screw-on cap is in fine working order.
