Lovely La Pierre Victorian silver overlay perfume/scent bottle was meant to be worn on a chatelaine. The name chatelaine derives from the French term châtelaine and was originally used as a device designed to have all the small tools necessary for the woman of the household to sort out any problem she may encounter in her day; such as a needle case or this scent bottle, the explanation for the loop at the back of perfume bottle. These bottle are becoming scarce! This one is in very good antique condition, with no chips or cracks to the crystal and some minor nicks to the silver from age and use. It is missing its glass stopper. I have been on the look out for one but in the event that I cannot find one, a cork stopper would serve the purpose if one was going to use it instead of displaying it. The sterling lid has beautifully detailed silver work and silver overlay adheres perfectly to the glass. The glass has no chips or cracks, and it is clean inside, with no residue. Clearly marked sterling at the back collar under the lid hinge near the chatelaine loop and a stylized "L" mark next to it for La Pierre. Bottle measures 3.5" tall and just over 3/4" wide. Lid opens and closes with a firm click and still has the original cotton to absorb the order of the perfume. A great collection piece.
