This antique perfume bottle is the absolute picture of elegance! It boasts brilliant pressed glass in a dazzling pattern, but the real eye catcher is the beautiful sterling collar!
Smooth sterling silver covers the entirety of the collar and features a number of maker's mark. The first is a hallmark reading "JHW" belonging to early later 19th century silversmith John Hazelwood Warren.
Warren was renowned for his silver works used in tandem with cut and pressed glass. The next mark is the "lion passant", a typical mark indicating an item's British manufacture. Adjacent to that is a leopard's head (the symbol of the London Assay Office).
Finally, the date mark depicts a small "g"; this assures us that the piece was manufactured in 1902. The stopper matches the bottle perfectly, featuring a number of elegant triangular facets.
As you can see, the sterling areas exhibit a number of significant dents towards the top, but remains relatively unscratched. The bottle in its entirety shows some wear and minor surface scratching, but remains in good antique condition overall.
For being almost 110 years old, we think that's pretty impressive!
