Offered for sale is an unusual pair of 19th century Grainger & Company for Worcester perfume bottles with stoppers. The pierced handles were formed and reticulated by Alfred Barry. The bottles are enhanced with raised gilt bamboo flowers and leaves to the front, while the verso reveals a single butterfly. These bottles are heavily influenced by Asian designs of the time.

They are in excellent condition with minor gilt wear to the stoppers and top rims of the bottles. The art of piercing was a difficult and complicated task and very few had the talent or patience to execute this tedious process. Alfred Barry worked for Grainger & Co., moving to Royal Worcester in 1902. He became known as the famous “reticulator”.

Size: 11 ¼” Height.
