Here's a totally lovely perfume bottle or scent bottle with a striking portrait of a lady enameled on the front. It was probably made to hang from a chatelaine, but would be perfect today as an unusual pendant. The fine enamel portrait includes pretty guilloche enameling, which means the background was first engine turned with a design and then enamel over it. This creates a shimmering effect in the light. There are also pretty little gold bead accents on her wonderful headdress. The whole piece is just over 2 1/4" long from the top of the ring to the bottom of the bottle. The bottle itself is 1" long from the top of the stopper to the bottom of the bottle. The bottle is made of a gilded metal and the whole piece is in excellent shape. The enamel is quite perfect. Also, the stopper lifts out and fits back snugly when replaced.
Sometimes a small piece can have a big impact. This is one of those pieces - I really love it.
