Fully prepared for either a walk in the shopping districts of Paris or headed for a bit of light work in the cutting garden as she is dressed for today, Mlle. Lily is always careful to have a scent bottle handy. One never knows when a Lady might meet a Gentleman of Means, and her allure must appeal to ALL of his senses - don't you agree? Heaven forbid that a dewy sheen might have appeared upon her brow and she feel less than... shall we say... fresh? Hence the need for a vial of her signature scent always on hand! A chatelaine presentation keeps such a perfume bottle easily accessible and an elegant accessory at the same time!
This tiny scent bottle is a real beauty, and to find it suspended from a trio of jewelry-quality chains gathered in the middle with a gold-washed ornament and hanging from a silver clip, well... all the better! The bottle is designed in the Aesthetic style - most popular in the 1870s. The tiny top unscrews to allow the bottle to be filled, and it is present and works well. Overall, the vial and chain measures 5 1/4" long (13 cm). Everything is in excellent condition, and I am sending it contained in an antique round cardstock box that suits it well. Buy with confidence from Mlle. Bereux!
