Extremely rare Czech clear and frosted crystal bottle and stopper with dauber intact. The design is two female nudes encircling an urn. The bottle is molded as a bouquet of flowers. The frame is gilded metal with an elaborate filigree design. Central green stone designed as a rose. The metal work is all original and retains its rich gold luster. There is a small loop of metal at the bottom on the left side missing. There are no restorations on the bottle. There is a roughness on the back under the feet of the left nude that extends 3/4 of an inch. This is not a chip. There is an imperfection in the glass, not a chip, on the inside throat of the opening. The stopper is perfect with dauber intact. The bottle is unmarked (typical) with wear as detailed above. It is listed in Czechoslovakian Perfume Bottles and Boudoir Accessories by Jacqueline Y. Jones-North, copyright 1990 by Antique Publications. It is #590. The ormolu is compressed in the Czech style and the jewelry is authentic. The antique perfume dealer from whom I originally purchased this item said although today's technology can reproduce the bottle, the intact, one piece dauber cannot be reproduced. The height is 6". Many imitators, very few originals.
