The design on this stopper is extremely well done with rounded curves and a lot of detail giving the representation of a Colonial/Regency couple a lot of dimension. The front of the clear stopper has a large cut in oval shaped circle giving you an illusion you are seeing the couple in a mirror or through a window. Also on the front of the stopper are selected areas of a notched rim. The backside of the stopper has the frosted intaglio of the dancing couple. The base of this perfume is a light blue in color with a lot of cut design. It has ribs, steps, a star within a star and circular shaped indentations. Even the bottom of the somewhat rectangular base has softly curved indents. The glass is in excellent condition with no cracks, scratches, abrasions or repairs. You can find as is normal and expected some minute flea bites from an owner's ring. With inspection I also found some of those 1/32 and 1/16 inch nicks. On the backside of the stopper, on the man's pant leg, next to the rim is a chip. It measures approximately 5/16 tall X 1/8 inch at widest point and has a 3/32 tall X 1/32 inch wide smaller one just above it (photo # 6). The stopper shows evidence of dauber that has been ground down so the sharp break did not hurt anyone. The perfume has no acid mark as can be common to the time period. The perfume could have been for European sale or had a paper label which would have complied with US import laws. The perfume measures 6 1/4 inches tall with the base being 4 inches long X 1 3/4 inches deep.
